Pixar on Twitter

In which we congratulate Pixar on their Golden Lion award, and point out their Twitter existence.

As you may have guessed, we’re big fans of Pixar around here. Not just the movies and shorts they produce, but also the way they go about making their films.

This weekend, they officially joined Twitter (here) and there’s a particular quote that we’d like to share with you:

Our goal has always been simple: to entertain our audience around the world.

So said John Lasseter (here) – seems pretty obvious, being an entertainment company and all, but it does seem to be something that’s missed by a great many companies.

We also liked Brad Bird’s quote (here) about the other directors (Bird, Andrew Stanton, Lee Unkrich, Pete Docter):

John is Gladys Knight and we’re happy to be Pips.

Currently, all the Pixar directors are at the Venice Film Festival, where last night they were awarded the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement – congratulations!
