Early in 1988 I attended a conference where Steve Jobs was the keynote speaker. He screened two 16mm films created by Pixar: Luxo Jr and Red’s Dream. It blew me away. I always dreamed about using computers to do animation, and here was a company that had successfully created two computer-animated films! Afterwards, I joined a group of conference attendees to chat with Steve. He was smartly dressed in a designer suit (yes!) and answered our questions very courteously. That day was the first time I took notice of Pixar. In my wildest dreams, I couldn’t have imagined that I would be working for Pixar some day.
