When Toy Story 1 was released, I had some reservation about computer animation because I was such
a fan of Walt Disney's traditional, cell animation films. But I was so wrong.
With computer, you can do much, much more in animation. This book answered some of the questions
I've had about how computerized animation films are made and who these people are at Pixar.
Plus, if you are interested in Steve Jobs, Pixar's story can't be told without Jobs mentioned.
Although Jobs definitely played a critical role in sustaining and growing the company, it is sometimes regrettable
that people tend to overemphasize his role while undermining those of others at Pixar. "The Pixar Touch" somewhat
demystifies that part.
All in all, this is perfect for all animation fans.
This was one of those books which was difficult to put down. Prior to reading this book I was aware of how Pixar came about but not to the extent the book delved into. It showed the perseverance of people's dreams and fight for that dream to come true. The technology which came out of the dream and how those magical movies showed up on screen were enjoyed by millions maybe even billions of people around the world, now that's a dream very few have come true.
The book shows what we already knew about Steve Jobs and his gut instincts to stand behind a product when no one else would. The vision of Jobs and the perseverance of Pixar led the world into technology and the standards trying to be obtained by others. These people were visionaries to technology and I don't see that challenge changing anytime soon.
