  • Pixar Post Book Club news – we announce that we’ll be delaying the video wrap up discussion of the book by one week to allow more readers a chance to catch up. Our full video discussion will now take place on June 4, 2014. Stay tuned for more details.

Part Two of The Pixar Pipeline Project

Radiator Springs 500½ Discussion & Review

  • Starting at 45:00 into the show – We chat about our take and review on the newest Cars Toons short, Radiator Springs 500½.
  • We discuss our reader’s ratings of the short as well as the elements that really shined (the color and lighting) as well as the trickier moments (the fast-paced nature of the short).
  • We also cover an amazing correlation that our forum user came up with and how a certain deleted scene from Cars might have been an inspiration for the Baja race scene.

Looking at The Next Podcast

  • Starting at 01:05:03 into the show – At the top of the show, we discussed Toy Story of TERROR! coming out on Blu Ray, but we dig back into the special features for a few we forgot to mention.
  • Additionally, we chat about a topic that we’re working on for our next podcast – Inside Out. What is the new technology that was used and is there a certain connection to an early 90’s television show called Herman’s HeadBe sure to include your comments and we may include your thoughts as a part of our next show.

  1. Another great episode T.J. and Julie! I'm really enjoying the Pixar Pipeline Project interviews, as I'm sure many listeners are! I knew there was a lot that went into editing but didn't realize the depth until this interview with Chloe – getting sound effects, recording scratch and transcribing dialog, etc. I also thought Chloe had an insightful comment when she said having her first job in LA and then moving to Pixar really showed her how good it is there. That makes a lot of sense, if you were lucky enough to go right from college to Pixar, you wouldn't realize how different and special it is there. Anyways, I'm really looking forward to the remaining interviews!!

  2. I agree with you Jeff, these interviews are great! I can hardly wait till the next! Also, I bet most racecars aren't very good with directions, since they only go on racetracks, and those are not to hard to navigate. And, Lightning in particular does not have a good sense of it since he takes the wrong road to try to get back on the interstate in the first film. Thanks for giving Creativity, inc. another week, and thanks for giving Dan, Pricklepants, and I a nod in the podcast. Looking forward to 29!

  3. Hey Jeff – we're glad you're enjoying the Pipeline series. I have to agree that I had no clue how much the editing department had a hand in shaping their films from the beginning to end. We're excited to bring the next interview in line coming soon – up next, the Art department! 🙂
