Pixar Storytelling Process Pitch Scenes for a Movie

Pixar studio’s story process by Monsters University Head of Story Kelsey Mann. He explained that during development, particular scenes will be assigned to specific team members, who will go off and create a detailed storyboard of how the scene will play out. Instead of pitching the scene using static paper, Pixar now utilizes a computerized program that allows the artist to sketch the storyboard digitally, which can then be presented in a rough animated form to the team.

Mann explained that when an artist is pitching his or her scene, it’s almost like a performance. Studio etiquette states that there is polite applause once a team member is finished pitching the scene, after which the rest of the team provides input and notes on how to make it better. Mann demonstrated this by showing a scene that he previously pitched involving Mike and Sully meeting on the playground in elementary school. Obviously the scene never made the final cut of the film, but Mann went through many, many iterations of the sequence before they eventually dropped it. He wasn’t deterred, however, as he added that every failure is useful because it gets the team to the next “thing,” which eventually leads to the finished product.
