Pixar Will Be Hit Harder Than Apple By Steve Jobs Death

Another good article by IB Times on the impact the death of Steve Jobs will have on Pixar.

Apple’s visionary leader Steve Jobs is gone. While the Apple family will surely mourn the loss of its iconic genius, Jobs’ other company, Pixar, may miss him the most.

If Lasseter is the soul of Pixar, Jobs was the heart. His imagination and willingness to push technology further was a constant inspiration to Pixar’s earliest employees, like Brad Bird, Pete Docter and Andrew Stanton, who later went on to develop their own feature films (“The Incredibles,” “Monsters, Inc.” and “Finding Nemo”).

“Steve Jobs was an extraordinary visionary, our very dear friend and the guiding light of the Pixar family,” Lasseter said. “He saw the potential of what Pixar could be before the rest of us, and beyond what anyone ever imagined. Steve took a chance on us and believed in our crazy dream of making computer animated films; the one thing he always said was to simply ‘make it great.’ He is why Pixar turned out the way we did and his strength, integrity and love of life has made us all better people. He will forever be a part of Pixar’s DNA.”
