The Pixar Perspective on The Necessity of Trailers

Great movie trailers are something of a lost art. While we are overloaded with ads for every new big-budget movie these days, they’re getting more obnoxious, cacophonous, and ruinous. Depending on ...

Mattia Nicoletti's curator insight, March 21, 2013 3:40 AM

Josh Spiegel writes:

"It’s legitimately fascinating to see how that immediacy which has pervaded the Internet spawns a disdain for filmmakers who want to keep secrets. JJ Abrams, now firmly a part of the Walt Disney company as the director of at least one new Star Wars movie, is well-known for choosing deliberate vagueness over direct reveals

 

in his marketing campaigns, something he’s passed on to collaborators like Damon Lindelof, who’s co-writing another Disney tentpole film, Tomorrowland, directed by Pixar stalwart Brad Bird. And people can’t stand it. Maybe it’s latent frustration over howLost ended (or maybe you don’t like its beginning or middle), but people get so furious online to think that Abrams hasn’t, for example, told us who the bad guy is in Star Trek Into Darkness. Is he Khan or isn’t he?

 

We must know! Now! It’s our right! It’s our right to know everything possible about movies likeStar Trek Into Darkness and Brave before they open!

Except, of course, it’s not our right."

 

I completely agree with him.

The voice stars recorded together again for the prequel, allowing them to play off each other..."His voice is just too big, too good to go off a recording,' Crystal says. 'You need to be in a room with the guy to get the chemistry."

Sirenetta Leoni's curator insight, April 27, 2013 2:50 AM

One of the first things you learn if you visit Pixar Studios, is that each characters' lines are recorded separately; after which Pixar's stellar team of award-winning sound editors and designers painstakingly builds the dialogue from the recordings. Line deliveries are perfected by cobbling together parts of sentences or words from various takes to create just the right turn of phrase.

 

The exception to the rule are the characters of "Mike" and "Sully," whose dialogue Billy Crystal and John Goodman have always recorded together beginning with "Monsters Inc." The reason they allow the two actors to work together according to director Dan Scanlon is that "there's a rhythm between those two guys that you just can't duplicate from separate (audio) tracks."

Gregg Morris's curator insight, April 9, 2013 3:32 PM

"Pixar is a creative organization we often draw inspiration from. Aerogramme Writers’ Studio recently captured a list of Pixar’s 22 Rules of Storytelling, a list originally tweeted by Emma Coats, Pixar’s Story Artist.

 

It's a really nice list. And it closely overlaps with what we all do with envisioning and writing into existence what an experience should be.

 

So I had some fun, took some creative license, and changed a couple our words in [brackets] below to compare the rules of storytelling to the design of experiences:"

Parker Donat's curator insight, April 9, 2013 6:30 PM

This is takes the 22 Rules of Storytelling into a whole new perspective. It's an integrated approach to use experience design with storytelling. The two naturally are aligning itself to better storytelling.

Danny Boyle Claims “The Pixarification Of Movies” Is Wiping Out Adult Storytelling in Cinema

Danny Boyle Claims “The Pixarification Of Movies” Is Wiping Out Adult Storytelling in Cinema | Pixar | Scoop.it

"Boyle certainly makes some interesting points (he and Steven Soderbergh would make a fantastic TED co-talk), especially when he claims cable television is “much more dangerous than what you see in cinema, and that's the wrong way around.” Do you think “Game of Thrones,” “Breaking Bad,” and “Mad Men” are where cutting-edge storytelling now lives? Or is cinema safely dangerous as long as Lars von Trier is around?"
