teaInLondon: Hot Mulled Pear and Pixar

Standard, 7th December 2015, teo, 0 Comments

Monday 2 weeks ago, I considered myself very blessed and lucky to see Director and Animator Peter Sohn and Producer Denise Ream talk about pixar’s latest film, The Good Dinosaur.

I had known about The Good Dinosaur for awhile and it was always something I was quite interested in knowing what Pixar would do with a film about dinosaurs. When I no longer heard any news about the production of it I had imagined it was scrapped but to hear from Sohn that it was really a matter of back to the drawing board with the story.

I have to admit when turning up I wasn’t expecting a full house! Besides catching up with friends it was great to see that most were illustrators and animators. A real testament to how loved Pixar is across the world.

While the guests of the evening were ‘tardy for the party’, it was still pretty good¬†to spend that time mingling with like-minded folk and also catch up with my friend who I had not seen in the longest time due to our busy schedules.

 

To sum up the talk was motivating and encouraging. It really was a boost of confidence to hear the direction that the film has now taken, and I am expecting it to be a testament to Pixar’s impeccable attention to detail and craftsmanship in great storytelling. Plenty was was learnt and one could only hope for maybe a week of workshops and portfolio reviews with them. You can catch the rest of the talk on the iTunes store.

After the talk, I went to Starbucks with my friend Sharifa for some seasonal winter warmers, the mulled pear was nice but didn’t have anything on Starbucks’s hot mulled apple.

I will be reviewing ‘The Good Dinosaur’ later this week and I wanted to use this post to announce¬†teoblogs Christmas giveaway!
I will be giving away x1 The art of ‘The Good Dinosaur’ + a surprise treat. I will be posting more details on twitter and tumblr about the giveaway and sadly it is only open to residents within the UK.

Keep a look out for the posts and leave a comment here about what you thought about the Meet The Filmmakers event.
