Pixar Exhibition in Edinburgh

March 24, 2007 – 11:41 am | by Benjamin Watt

Last summer I visited the ‘Pixar: 20 years of Animation’ exhibition in London. Anyone with a passing interest in any of Pixar’s films will find it fascinating, and having toured around a bit, the exhibition has now setup shop at the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh, running from March 2nd to the 28th May. It’s essentially the same exhibition shown in other countries, but they’ve apparently added in some new items related to the forthcoming Ratatouille film.

I haven’t been to see it yet in Edinburgh, but will be certainly doing so, the Toy Story Zoetrope is worth the admission price alone. They’re also running quite a lot of related events; film screenings, animation workshops, and talks by those in the animation industry. In particular the Meet the Pros talks seem particularly interesting, but although I was annoyed not to be able to make it to the first one with Pixar’s Elyse Klaidman, Curator and Dean of Art and Warren Trezevant, animator, all of these talks are going to be available via a video podcast. Highlights of this first talk that was held on the 2nd of March are now up for download, with the full version coming soon, and remaining talks becoming available shortly after they’re held.

There’s links to subscribing to the podcast over on 55degrees.

    not to take away from pixars feat, it should be noted that burning man artist peter hudson has been making large scale, life-sized interactive 3d stroboscopic zoetropes since 2002. four years prior to pixars entry into this field.
