Good morning shredders and happy Thursday! Today's shredvotion is about John Lasseter. John Lasseter is an animator, film director, screenwriter, producer and the chief creative officer of Pixar Animation Studios, Walt Disney Animation Studios, and DisneyToon Studios. He is also the Principal Creative Advisor for Walt Disney Imagineering. John started out at Disney but was fired because of his obsession with computer animating. He went on to join up with George Lucas at Lucasfilm which later became Pixar. He directed Toy Story, A Bug's Life, Toy Story 2, Cars, Cars 2, and is currently working on Toy Story 4. John is an interesting choice for a shredvotion but let me tell you why he is truly a shredder. When John started at Disney he was captivated with the idea of computer animation. He has been a Disney fan all his life, even working a summer Job at one of the theme parks. In his quest to innovate and share stories he saw a whole new medium in computers. Disney, his dream job, chastised him for it. So what did John do? He definitely didn't quit on his dream. He found someone else who saw his vision. He stuck with it. After moving along with Lucasfilm ,which later became Pixar, he dominated the computer animation world. He made the movies he wanted how he wanted and you know what Pixar got bought by Disney. Guess who now became top dog at the company that said it couldn't be done,John. That to me is a shredder. He stuck to his shred, saw what he wanted, and made it happen. All of this he did with a still incredibly humble attitude. This is how John describes his job “We make the kind of movies we like to watch. I love to laugh. I love to be amazed by how beautiful it is. But I also love to be moved to tears. There’s lots of heart in our films.” I hope his story can inspire you today to stick to your guns. If you have a dream, go out there and get it. Shred everything along the way. Make your masterpiece and keep a happy and positive attitude through it all. You have the power and ability to do awesome things with your shred. Enjoy the journey and never forget
Have peace, BE LOVE, and Shred Everything
