The Science Behind Pixar exhibit: A Review

Last month, I needed a Disney fix.   With no vacations planned until Food and Wine time, I didn’t think I could hold out much longer.   Luckily for this Pennsylvania gal, there was a fix not too far away.The Science Behind Pixar exhibit: A Review IMG_8148 IMG_8148



The Science Behind Pixar exhibit is currently featured at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, PA. It’s less than a two-hour drive for me, so I was excited to check it out.

You begin the experience with a short video, and let me tell you—Disney has these down to a science- ha. It reminded me of the old Magic of Disney Animation film that they used to show at DHS, but updated and geared towards adults.

Then, they let you loose in the exhibit. I won’t give everything away, but it really is fascinating- you just can’t imagine the manpower and time that goes into the Pixar films.   For example: rendering. I didn’t even know that was a thing. The description of how they have to figure out what color the pixels of the green balloon, behind the red balloon, covered by the fuchsia balloon are in the film ‘Up’ really blew my mind.The Science Behind Pixar exhibit: A Review IMG_8169 IMG_8169



This exhibit also had something for everyone. There was heavy explanation and video for adults but then there were plenty of hands on exhibits for kids. I would be lying if I said I didn’t think the hands-on stuff was awesome, too. Also, for Pixar film buffs, there were tons of art and developmental sketches on display that didn’t make it into the movies. The only downside to the exhibit was that I felt it wasn’t long enough.  There are two main rooms and I wished there was double.

Bottom line? Check it out if you’re in the area- I got my fix! The Science Behind Pixar will be running at The Franklin Institute until September 5, 2016.
