The Science Behind Pixar

Did you know that in the film Ratatouille none of the toes of any human character are ever shown? Or that filmmakers created over 270 pieces of food in the computer?  Every food item was prepared and styled in a real kitchen, then photographed for reference AND eaten.

Those are just a few of the fun facts you'll uncover at the Museum Of Science in their new exhibit: THE SCIENCE BEHIND PIXAR.  There are lots of interactive sets, life size characters for photo ops and a short film that explains all the basics.

During a recent press dinner and preview we had the chance to meet with Pixar executives and learn all about animation, lighting, modeling and rendering, among other things.  Needless to say, it's a very fun way to spend a few hours and enlightening to see all the work necessary (a single frame can take up to 17 hours to produce) behind the scenes to create some of our favorite film characters.  The exhibit opens today and runs through the end of the year before it begins a national tour.  You will not be disappointed.
