John Lasseter: A Day in a Life

2011, Art and Artists  -   7 Comments

This is a day in the life of the Hawaiian shirt-obsessed godfather of Pixar who revolutionized the animation industry.

John Alan Lasseter is an American animator, film director and the chief creative officer at Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios.

He is also currently the Principal Creative Advisor for Walt Disney Imagineering. Lasseter's first job was with The Walt Disney Company, where he became an animator.

Next, he joined Lucasfilm, where he worked on the then-groundbreaking use of CGI animation. After the Graphics Group of the Computer Division of Lucasfilm was sold to Steve Jobs and became Pixar in 1986, Lasseter oversaw all of Pixar's films and associated projects as executive producer.

    Cars made for USA kids right up to 50 yrs old..voice overs need to be able to scream and shout because the producers don't know humour.
    The lower the IQ the more others enjoy.

    He's like the dad from the 80's sitcom Silverspoons (remember that? With Ricky Shroeder, Erin Gray and...JASON BATEMAN!). I would call him a lucky sod, but I have huge respect for Mr Lasseter. He had to work extremely hard to get where he is, and still hugs his employees every morning. Whatta guy!
