Andrew Stanton, Oscar-winning PIXAR director of Finding Nemo and WALL-E, makes his first-ever visit to Chapman University to talk about storytelling and introduce the new 3D version of Finding Nemo on Friday, Oct. 26 at 7 p.m. in Folino Theater. The lecture and Q&A will be followed by the 3D screening of Finding Nemo.
In 1990, Stanton became only the second animator and ninth employee to join Pixar Animation Studios. He went on to help establish Pixar as one of the world’s leading animation studios. He was designer and writer on Toy Story (1995), for which he was nominated for an Oscar. He went on to write and direct such worldwide hits as A Bug’s Life (1998), Finding Nemo (2003) and WALL·E (2008), the latter two both winning Oscars for Best Animated Feature. Stanton also dabbles in voice work, perhaps most memorably as Crush, the laid back turtle, in Finding Nemo (2003).
Remember no food or drink are allowed in Folino Theater. Seating is first come, first served.
