WALL-E: Design With A Purpose

There's an interesting, in-depth interview with Ralph Eggleston, Production Designer for WALL-E, on the Animation Art Conservation site. Ralph talks about the process of designing the look of the film, and there are some great examples of preproduction art which you can compare to the final film frames.


  1. Hey Victor!
    I'm a new comer to your blog as I hope to join the pixar team some day. I have always been fascinated with animation ever since I saw my first disney movie :)
    I'm currently in college for Graphic Design with a Minor in Music and I'm hoping that with this background I can get a Masters in Animation somewhere.

    Your blog is so inspiring and motivating that it helps me get some hope of becoming a part of your team. I was wondering if there is any place for a graphics artist in Pixar? I would assume there is something, but what should I concentrate on the most while going through schooling besides the obvious?

  2. That really was a very interesting interview, especially for anyone like myself working on their own short films. Thanks for the link :)

  3. Great interview! Thank you for sharing the link.
