The Science Behind Pixar is a behind the scenes look at how the movies are made beyond just humor and entertainment.  This exhibit focuses on the science, technology, engineering, math, artistry and creativity that goes into each scene. With over 40 interactive exhibits guests will have the opportunity to learn about the film-making process from where it all started, Toy Story to their latest box office hit, Inside Out.  You’ll be able to see and hear first hand what goes into creating some of Pixar’s most loved characters from members of the actual production teams. This demonstration of ultimate creativity, imagination and storytelling is something you don’t want to miss.
Exhibit Highlights:
  • In Sets & Cameras, visitors will discover how a bugs-eye view was achieved for A Bug’s Life by viewing an actual set from a bug’s perspective through a viewing portal and then using camera angles and large-set design techniques on a touch-screen computer.
  • Visitors will learn how Toy Story’s digital sculptures are created based on sketches from artists in Modeling.
  • Visitors will enter a scene from Finding Nemo in Lighting to solve challenges similar to what Pixar artists faced in creating animated water with virtual light.
  • Rigging showcases how the models are given a virtual skeleton to enable the animators to add movement. Here, visitors can see a virtual model of Sulley from Monsters, Inc., which has 30,000 posable points.
  • In Surfaces visitors can immerse themselves in the techniques behind adding color and texture to every surface in a film by designing “skins” for computer models of characters from Cars.
