Warren Trezevant joined Pixar Animation Studios in 1995 and has animated on seven of Pixar’s feature films, including Finding Nemo, Incredibles and Ratatouille. Taking advantage of his strong technical background, Warren has been exploring ways to take characters off the screen and bring them to life in our world with the Toy Story Zoetrope and the animatronic WALL*E. Warren is currently working with Pixar’s software team to improve their animation production software.

The Art of Pixar by DeAnn Cobb

More than just a showcase of high-end technology, each and every Pixar film is considered an art. Did you know these computer-animated films are essentially born as traditional art? Why does Pixar rely on traditional art forms? How is it used in production? Dive deeper into the films you love through this talk about the art of Pixar.

Kim came to Pixar in 2007 from The Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Her role as a project manager at MoMA spanned six years where she worked on projects ranging from art installations to the building of the new Education Center. In the winter of 2005 Kim was involved in the installation of “Pixar: 20 Years of Animation.” She eventually stepped into the role of project manager of the traveling exhibition and has been amazed by not only the film making process at Pixar but at the support and fans of Pixar she’s met around the world. While in New York, Kim also worked extensively as an actor and is a member of the Ensemble Studio Theatre. She grew up in Sarasota, Florida on Siesta Key and received her degree from Rollins College in Winter Park, FL.
