Why You Cried at the End of ‘Coco’ - The New York Times
Pixar has cracked the code for calibrating the perfect feeling-all-the-feels moment: That instant where the narrative taps into its audience's deepest emotions and reduces it to tears. It's there in "Toy Story 3." "Up," of course. "Inside Out." "Coco" is no different — though there's something uniquely effective about how it gets you to that place.

Pixar Animation Studios: Made In Point Richmond LEAKED!
For centuries -- millennia even -- the biggest goal of Pixar fanatics has been to find the Holy Grail, the rarest of all DVDs to bear the lamp: Made In Point Richmond. Given out exclusively to employees shortly before the studio moved to a larger facility, it was never sold to the public. You could only have a copy if you worked for the company at the time, and though it had grown to a staff of hundreds by the time the disc was printed, it still wasn't as big as it is now.

Why was it so important to hunt this DVD down? Because it contained everything Pixar had ever created up to that point that wasn't a movie. All the shorts, all the commercials, all the early tech demos...EVERYTHING. Some of their early work was so hard to find that there was a community dedicated to tracking down the ads -- I found out about them when I published my Casper review and they contacted me with an enthusiastic "YOU FOUND THE TWIZZLER AD!!" Wasn't trying.

“My book on rendering, Physically Based Rendering, is widely used in university courses and by graphics researchers and developers. Greg Humphreys, Pat Hanrahan, and I were awarded an Academy Award in recognition of the book's impact on CGI in movies—never before has a book received an Academy Award. The third edition of the book was released in Fall of 2016.”
