The premiere of Pajama Gladiator
The premiere of Pajama Gladiator was this pass Thursday and from what we hear it was a great event. An audience of more than 1000 attended as well as Ed Catmull who is the president of Pixar. He spoke and basically said that BYU's animation is "producing the best of the industry." He also said that,"It's the perception not just at Pixar but also at the other studios that something pretty remarkable is happening here." Well of course there is Ed. The spirit runs pretty strong on the BYU campus. I wonder if he minds if I called him Ed. Probably not, since one time when Betsy and Russ were visiting Pixar with us, I think we parked in his spot. And I think from then on, we've been secret friends. So secret, I don't even think he knows.
Ben is so thrilled that the film is completed and has been excited about everything. He may also try to help with some of the things on the DVD. I sure hope things work out here for Ben at Pixar because I am afraid, he loves Pixar and thinks they are the best in the business. If Ben were to go anywhere else, I think he would be disappointed forever. Please, oh please, Pixar, keep Ben forever.
