A meeting of Creative Minds helps build links across the Atlantic
The brains behind Oscar winning animation house Pixar explained the painstaking process of creating bold and bright blockbusters.
Jonas Rivera and director of Monsters Inc Pete Docter were taking part in the U.S ambassador Kevin O'Malley's Creative Minds series in the Phoenix Park.
Pixar's latest release Inside Out took over five years to produce. "It takes one day to produce one second of footage," Rivera said.
"So they are not quick films to turnover."
The Creative Minds series invites prominent U.S. artists, writers, filmmakers, digital culture innovators, and musicians to share their experience with young Irish audiences.
The goal is to find ways to create new collaborations and encourage more creative economic linkages between young people in the United States and Ireland.
