The exhibition 'The Science of Pixar' arrives at the City of Arts and Sciences on October 6
The exhibition 'The Science of Pixar' can be visited at the Science Museum from October 6. 'The science of Pixar' is an exhibition designed to offer visitors a unique look at what happens behind the screen and to discover the process used in the creation of Pixar films.
Visitors will begin their immersion with a video that recounts the process Pixar uses to turn an idea into a film, and then they can approach the exhibit and visit, in the order of their choice, the eight sections that they recount Pixar's production process. The interactive exhibit showcases the computer science, math and science concepts used by the artists and computer scientists who help bring Pixar's award-winning films to the big screen.
The exhibition, created by the Boston Museum of Science in collaboration with Pixar Animation Studios, is divided into eight areas, corresponding to the steps in the process used by Pixar to turn an idea into a film: modeling, rigging, surfaces, stages and cameras, animation, simulation, lighting and rendering.
Audiences will be able to learn, through videos and interviews with the workers, real examples of the technical challenges behind some of their favorite Pixar films, from 'Toy Story' to 'Coco' for 'WALL·E', 'Monstres, SA' or 'Finding Nemo', among many others.
Visitors of all ages will participate and learn about the filmmaking process through activities inspired by some of Pixar's most acclaimed films, from the first computer-animated feature film 'Toy Story', which premiered more than two decades ago, until 'Luca', released in the summer of 2021.
The exhibition, which can be seen until March 2024 in the City of Arts and Sciences, brings together dozens of elements designed so that visitors can physically and virtually experience the techniques used by this cinematographic studio in its day in day. Thus, they will be able to discover first-hand how the lighting of a scene or the point of view of the camera can influence our emotions.
