This is a very short program about the Pixar company--and about John Lasseter (the leader) in particular. It has some very interesting stuff-- such as how laid back and childish the work atmosphere is here. Additionally, you get to see Lasseter's office--perhaps the coolest combination of an office and toy museum you could imagine! Some other things you learn in the film is that George Lucas made a HUGE mistake by selling out early on, about the impact of Steve Job's ownership on the company and the various projects they have done. The bottom line, however, is that this is a very short film (designed to fit in a half house time slot--including commercials). This makes it more like a glimpse instead of a comprehensive look at the subject. For this, see the much more thorough and interesting film narrated by Stacy Keach, "The Pixar Story".
