"Cars" opens today worldwide!

So, what are you doing this weekend? Anything fun? Well... If you, you know, get bored or something, why not go check out this little movie I worked on? What? You haven't heard about it? Well, go see it anyway. Better see it twice, just to be sure. And then come back here and let me know what you thought of it. Unless you hated it.



  1. hi, I saw it last night and I really liked it. Congrats. the best sequence was when they find mcqueen in the town and he has to leave.
    and most funny part is the scene mater is explaining to mcqueen that everybody is sad because he has gone!!! lmfao.
    congrats again.

  2. Hello! I have been following your blog for a bit.

    The movie was amazing! I LOVED much that I saw it 2 times on opening night and one more time today.

    Thanks to you and the crew for creating great movies that just keep taking my breath away!


    P.S. I loved Guido!

  3. Great job on another magnificent film! I really don't know what some people are on when they say the film was "ok".

    I could argue that it is Pixars best film so far.

    Care to share what shots you worked on Victor? :) Maybe you'll treat us to some quicktimes soon?


  4. I saw Cars tonight and was amazed. Amazed? Yes.

    The theater even provided a nice comparison-contrast by showing a trailer for the new Zemeckis film... Mocap has it's uses and purpose, but it's not good at getting an actors total performance across. Real animators imparting a true, refined performance is pure delight from my standpoint. It would probably be a much better film with real actors with a CGI house. Ah well, CGI is the filmmakers new gimick. Pity they don't have the 20 years of hindsight that Pixar has. CGI is just a tool in the animators toolkit, it is not an end in itself.

    Victor, I look forward to a reel with your work from Cars and perhaps some outtakes. :) Thanks!!

  5. wow... at last! ;o)

    i will see the movie tomorrow. looking forward to it.

    i've been following your work since alien song. i'm a big fan! :o)

    since you started your blog i feel like i know you even better (blogs do that). so now, for the first time, i can look for your name on the credits and proudly say "hey, i know that guy!" :oP


  6. Oh I loved it so much! (Ahem .. saw it twice) -- When I find out someone has seen it - we just start ranting and ranting about it. When I first saw it - I came back so inspired and energized, despite the fact it was late and a school night. I had to work on a college application essay for my english class - and despite being tired, the movie had lifted my energy so much that the words flowed out perfectly! (That could have been the chocolate cake too ...) -- Thank you guys, so - so much. I still want to see it again - I rarely re-watch a movie in theaters again unless it's a Pixar film -- it's hard to find good movies these days! :)
    Thank you -- again!

  7. I can't wait for the DVD.. ^^v

  8. When I first saw the trailer I thought it wasn't going to be that good, mainly because of the car designs, they just looked too cute for me.

    Later on the movie came out and we (about 10 animation mentor students) went to El Capitan theater to check it out and it has been a sublime experience. The theater is like an opera house and before the movie starts an amazing organist plays all sorts of music that reminded me Mickey Mouse. After that they have a real pit-stop show that gets you in the cars mood and how exciting that is.

    When the movie started I have to say that it took me about 10 - 15 min to get used to this cars world a bit weird a the beginning but later on is was superb! getting to know all the characters and identifying myself with them was fairly easy.

    When the movie ended I just said to myself, "John Lasseter has done it again" amazing guy.
