Every Friday we rocked '80s costumes.
Aaron Hartline. He was incredible- he really brought out the best in each of us. Not only did he help us grow as animators, but he helped us grow as professionals, showing us how to be a part of Pixar's culture and how to work in a studio environment.
If you'd like to check out the other intern's reels, here they are in order from left to right:
Youri Dekker, Sikand Srinivas, Mike Bidinger, Sani Spectra, Regina Donovan
We also had five amazing story interns this year!
Christina Chang, Hannah Cho, Zachary Shore, Yon Hui Lee, and Vitaliy Strokous.
Each animation intern was assigned a personal mentor. I was lucky enough to get Ken Kim as mine. He was one of the most talented, patient, funny guys I've met, and he taught me a ton- I think the most important thing I learned from him was to improve my poses and make sure they are appealing and clear.
Thanks for the memories, cupcakes! I'll miss you all!
