The Museum of Science in Boston will host the world premiere exhibit of The Science Behind Pixar this summer.
The exhibition is broken into eight sections each focusing on a step of the filmmaking process:
Modeling: Visitors will envision how digital sculptures are created based on sketches from artists.
Rigging: This part showcases how the models are given a virtual skeleton to enable the animators to add movement.
Surfaces: Visitors immerse themselves in the techniques behind adding color and texture to every surface in a film. Visitors will also have the opportunity to take their photo with human-size recreations of many of their favorite Pixar film characters, including Buzz Lightyear, Dory, Mike and Sulley, Edna Mode, and WALL•E.
Sets & Cameras: Visitors will discover how a bugs-eye view was achieved for “A Bug’s Life,” through camera angles and large-set design within the computer
Lighting: Visitors will explore creating animated water with virtual light in “Finding Nemo.”
Animation, Simulation and Rendering round out the exhibition.
