While making Toy Story, A Bug's Life, and now Toy Story 2, Pixar built a new kind of animation studio- on in which the relationship between artist and programmer is cruical to the way it works. The discovery of new processes and ways of thinking is continuing at a rapid pave. It is safe to say that the way we make films will be signifcantly different in the future as a result of what we learn now. There are, however, some principles of storytelling that are at the heart of what we do- and this will continue to be true in the future.
