Pixar

More than The Good Dinosaur, Pixar’s latest and greatest, what really excites me is the short that accompanies it, Sanjay’s Super Team.   It’s a story Sanjay once told me sitting in his apartment in the East Bay.

The Bay Area is home to one of the world’s most famous animated film production companies: Pixar. They’ve taken us into the worlds of rebellious toys, struggling superheros, lonely old men, wandering fish, brave young redheads.

But the worlds they create depend greatly on the sounds that exist there.

For that step, Pixar sends their animated films to Skywalker Ranch in Marin.  That's where sound designer Tom Myers works his sonic magic, bringing animated characters to life.
