John Lasseter’s birthday
Originally shared by Kenneth Johnson
January 12th Birthday Spotlight: John Lasseter and Pixar have been around long enough for most people to take them for granted; but Disney animation and digital animation itself could have gone in different, and possibly very wrong directions (for example „Norm Of The North” 2016) without the Walt Disney-influenced steady and imaginative mind of John Lasseter. Primarily because John understands the necessity of good stories with appealing characters as the main driving force before the first storyboard is drawn. Secondly John – like Walt – pushes the envelope on animation technology to constantly improve the look of his productions. I think John carries on the Disney animation tradition very well.
