Obsessing over TRIFLES
Last January, Pixar University presented a stage production of Susan Glaspell's turn-of-the-century drama, Trifles. This year we're creating a short-film adaptation, set more in the Depression era. It's a Pixar University production, so don't expect to see it in theatres or anything, it's just for education. Trifles is a compelling story, and adapting our performances from stage to screen is a cool challenge. This time I made sure to cut my hair. Apparently there weren't any hippie sheriffs in the 1930s.


Pam Walker is directing, with Mark Andrews DPing and Pete Sohn as cinematographer.

Looks like a fun project. Austin, the man with enough energy to fuel 100 Jumbo Jets! You must have a tiny nuclear reactor in your brain, surrounded by cotton candy and a lab rat running on a wheel in your cerebral cortex.
