Proof That the People Who Work at Pixar Are as Heartwarming As Their Movies

By

What kind of people does it take to make movies as wonderful as Pixar’s movies? Wonderful people, it seems. Letters of Note has a letter from Pixar animator Aaron Hartline to an aspiring animator who wrote to him: “When I took a tour at Disney right out of high school, I showed the tour guide/animator my work. She said ‘It’s easier to get a job as a basketball player than getting a animator position at Walt Disney Studios’. My mom said ‘Are you sure you want to do this?’ I was so angry. So motivated. I knew if I worked hard that one day..some day..I could do it! Took me 14 years of trying but it happened.”
