Pushing the Boundaries of What’s Possible

To deliver increasingly captivating stories in the world of animated movies takes passion and determination. The passion to continually push the boundaries of what’s possible. The determination to continually seek ways to make technology easily approachable by artists, so that the artists can focus on what they’re best at—telling stories that capture our imaginations. Max Liani, Senior Lead Engineer of RenderMan at Pixar Animation Studios, and Alex Wells, Principal Engineer at Intel, talk about collaborating to push the boundaries of what’s possible at the intersection of technology and art, and the ramifications that pervade outside the realm of motion pictures.
