  1. Hey TJ and Julie! Another great episode! I've really enjoyed all the interviews from the Monsters University blogger day, so much great info! Don't you wish you could stay there for a week and listen in on all the conversations and meetings going on for a movie? Anyways, I had a few comments:Julie, you're spot on, I bet there is some artwork on what Mike and Sulley's parents look like! At least some rough sketches, but maybe more! It'd be cool to see where they would take those character designs!I enjoyed all the different interviews but really got into the Lighting and Simulation one. It just boggles my mind to think of the computing power it must take to do Global Illumination! And how they came up with the algorithms to implement that, wow! Thanks for posting the link to that paper, that gives me something to do this morning!!I can't even imagine working side-by-side (and having weekly lunches) with Pete Docter! That's great that he was involved with the project!In all the interviews and discussions, the one thing I don't recall hearing about is the origin of the film – whose idea was it? Pete or Dan's? Did someone wake up one morning and say, \”I think we need a prequel to Monsters, Inc.\”? And I have no doubt that was the *best* M&M cookie ever! :)Really looking forward to your next episode, can't wait!!

  2. You were right there was a lot of technical info in this podcast and I loved it! This whole series was awesome and I'm so glad that you shared it. I can't wait to listen to what's coming next!Your dedication to Pixar is above and beyond any other site out there. Not only do you post the latest news but you're both so creative and talk with such passion in your podcasts, you both play off each other so well and your discussions are great. Keep doing what you're doing, I'm a HUGE fan!

  4. Hey Jeff – we must have missed responding to this comment! Thanks as always for the compliments! We definitely need to find out more about Mike and Sulley's parents as well as who's idea it was. We've heard a lot of comments about how the story started and that they wouldn't have made the prequel unless it was a good story, but we never heard whose idea it was that originally kicked off the project! We'll keep that in our back pocket in case we get to chat with Dan again! 🙂 Pixar Post – T.J.
