I’ve always had a dear love of Pixar. I don’t think there are many people who don’t.

But the more I see interviews and peek behind the scenes, the more there is to love. Obviously, incredible storytelling and creativity, but also really special people. Artists who are the top of their craft, but also funny, sincere, humble, and team-focused. Here is just one example:

‘Designing Brave’ with Tia Kratter and Steve Pilcher -from ‘The Pixar Podcast’

Tia Kratter and Steve Pilcher are so fun to listen to, and so generous with what they share about the artistry and craft behind making ‘Brave.’ I want to give a big shout out also to Derrick Clements at The Pixar Podcast, for his wealth of great, free material to listen to inside the Pixar shop, as well as his willingness to let me share this interview here at Theatre Avenue.
