  • Bill Zahn (Pixar Animation Studios): 5-Star Event

    Name: Bill Zahn (Pixar Animation Studios): 5-Star Event
    Date: November 6, 2019
    Time: 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM EST
    Event Description:
    Bill Zahn was a kid obsessed with movies. At the age of nineteen, he packed his bags, and with sixty bucks to his name, moved to Los Angeles to chase his dream.

    Even though he was completely self-taught and only had a modest portfolio, he quickly made his way into the world of live action creature and make-up effects, working as a lead artist on projects like Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, Men in Black, Godzilla and the creation of the Budweiser Frogs.

    This event takes place on Wednesday, November 6th at 7:00 pm in the UC Room 202.

    Bill’s lively, fun and fascinating talks share the process of creating some of the big screen’s most memorable characters, as well as the painstaking details and hard work required by dozens of artists to bring them to life; a process that can bring heartbreak as well as sheer joy, over an often grueling, several-year-long production.

    Bill is a passionate crusader and educator in the belief that we should do for a living whatever makes us smile. Bill says, “stepping out into the unknown and tackling the biggest challenges are what life is all about, and while our inner voice may tremble in terror at what lies ahead, we move forward, because even the smallest chance to bring a smile to someone else’s face, is worth the all the risk.”
