John Lasseter is to Pixar as milk is to cookies; they are one in the same. John Lasseter and his creative genius team at Pixar have carved a path of their own in the animation world, a path to me, that’s one worth taking.
John Lasseter is not only an animator, film director and Chief Creative Officer at Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios, but he is also the Principal Creative Advisor for Walt Disney Imagineering. In other words, my dream job!
After being an animator with The Walt Disney Company, John next joined Lucasfilm where he worked on what was then groundbreaking CGI animation. Once Lucasfilm was sold to Steve Jobs in 1986, now becoming Pixar, John was in charge of overseeing all of Pixar’s films as well as associated projects becoming an executive producer as well as director.
Pixar would not be the same without the visionary that is John Lasseter.
