  1. If your heart is in your dreams, your dreams come true!
    Kyk artikel oor filmmaker Jans Rautenbach (deur Leon van Nierop, RAPPORT Weekliks 27 Feb, pIII):
    Op 75… “Ek is ‘n spreker oor drome. As jy nie elke dag opstaan met drome nie, is die lewe nie die moeite werd nie….. Ouderdom is in die gees. Jy dink jouself oud.” en later sy “befoeterdheid …wat die beste spel uit sy spelers geneuk het.”
    …. werk wat dreams true maak.

    Lekker werk. Trots op jou en julle en Pixar.

  2. Pixar’s achievements are more than evidently momentous in their influence on film making, and will be revered by generations to come. And my dad is a part of that legacy :D!!!!!
