Colorcript Lecture at Pixar

Posted on Sunday 9 August 2009

I recently gave a talk on colorscripting at Pixar.

It was a bit intimidating to do a talk after Bill Cone and Ralph Eggleston gave theirs too. To make up for my inexperience, I reached out some of the best production designers outside of Pixar. I interviewed Paul Felix(Disney), Paul Lasaine(DreamWorks), Tom Cardone(Blue Sky), and Lou Romano(Laika).
It was absolutely incredible to learn words of wisdom from these guys who I have respected all my career.

Hopefully I can share some of my talk on my blog at some point!

I haven’t posted life paintings for a while. This is from about a year ago..
