Pixar Animation Studios gate

Yesterday the students and staff of BAYCAT went on the field trip of a lifetime at the world’s most prestigious animation studio. It was an incredibly awesome experience all around, from the life-sized models of Pixar characters in the lobby to the wacky, custom-built office spaces used by the animators. Other highlights included private screenings of behind-the-scenes documentaries, a tour through the process of character and story development, and a peek at the "Render Farm" where a huge network of computers runs 24/7 to create cinematic gold one frame at a time.

Plus, free sodas!
