This is something Nick Bruno sent out to the animation department today and I liked it so much I decided to share it here. It gives some insight to the hiring philosophy at Pixar and with ideas like these, it's easy to see why they are considered "the best." As a fan of animation I try not to limit myself to only looking to Pixar for inspiration, but these ideas (shared by Randy Nelson, head of the in-house Pixar University) explain what makes working in this industry so great. Technology will come and go. It's the people you work with day to day that make the difference. As my time here at Blue Sky is quickly coming to an end with just a few weeks left to go, I am grateful to have worked with so many "interested" people. This has been an amazingly wonderful experience. Wherever I go or whatever I do from here, I can only hope the sum of the parts will always be greater than the whole.
