Special Thanks to Alum Erik Langley for sharing his story. It was a huge benefit for students to learn from him and learn about the movie making process.
Erik told students about his path to Pixar:
"Growing up in Massachusetts, I always remember a career in movies, tv or animation seeming like it was just a pipe dream and out of grasp. But during college I developed a passion for the industry and after graduation, made my way out to the SF Bay Area to search for an entry level job. I've been in the industry for 12 years now."
