If there's one thing that we've learned while talking about and studying Pixar's films, it's that the background of making the film is equally as enthralling as the film itself. The creation of content from the story team, editorial team, animators, rigging artists, lighters and countless more is nothing short of inspirational. As we continue to explore the making of Inside Out through our visit to Pixar Animation Studios, we've been lucky enough to learn an amazing amount about the film from a few of the key players who worked on the upcoming film.
Not only did we want to continue our podcast interviews highlighting a behind-the-scenes look at the film, but we also wanted to visually explore some of the concept artwork with some additional details to help show how a scene develops.
STORY – This storyboard was drawn by Inside Out Story Supervisor Josh Cooley. Storyboards are drawn by story artists for the purpose of pre-visualizing the film. They are placed side by side in sequence, so that they convey scenes and deliver a rough sense of how the story unfolds. This storyboard is one of approximately 177,096 drawn, of which 127,781 were delivered to Editorial. The storyboarding process, in the form it is known today, was developed at Walt Disney Studios during the early 1930s.
