The Wisdom of John Lasseter

“Sunday, for me, is all about being home with the family with no plans,” Disney and Pixar chief creative officer John Lasseter said once.

Sunday, for me however, is about basking in the warm glow of auto-generated videos of John Lasseter statements accompanied by new age music and scenic stock photos. Experience for yourself:

  • Martin Cohen

    Another “quote” from John Lasseter: It is better for animation companies to not offer raises to employees who transfer to other companies. See this: http://www.cartoonbrew.com/business/pixars-ed-catmull-emerges-as-central-figure-in-the-wage-fixing-scandal-101362.html

  • Elsi Pote

    This is so funny, when people hit it off in business, once they have destroyed their detractors and competitors through the most unethical ways, they all become wise men and women.

    I’m not a religious person but this somehow has to be tied to false prophets, am I right?

      Does John Lasseter have a history of “destroying” his competitors in the most “unethical ways”? I’ve honestly never heard stories of such things.

      • Andrew

        He’s probably talking about internal directing competitors like Chris Sanders, Jan Pinkava and lower ranked. Byron Howard getting removed from direction was a very close call, good grief he made it through

        • Elsi Pote

          You are the real MVP.

          I was going to mention him cashing in on both Pixar sales, the one from Lucas to Steve Jobs and the one from Steve Jobs to Disney, plus other people that got the boot once he moved to Disney Animation but your argument is stronger/

          Thanks!

  • Pedro Nakama

    This reminds me of the department they have at Disney right now that creates quotes that Walt Disney said years ago to justify current management decisions.

    “Eight dollars would be a fair price for a churro.” -Walt Disney

    • DJM

      Is that true?!?

      • AmidAmidi

        Proof:

  • Guest

    People on this site really hate John Lasseter don’t they?

    • These Videos are Stupid

      Yes, there have been quite a few Cartoon Brew posts in the past poking fun at John Lasseter, but these videos are just stupid. I don’t really see it as an attack on Lasseter.

    • The_Purple_People_Eater

      No, just Amid.

  • The_Purple_People_Eater

    Another except from Amid’s diary, framing everyone like a douche except for himself. Ah, the oblivious irony is palpable.

  • Joe Blow

    Too easy.

  • ThatGuy

    John, you can be at home with your family on the weekends because you’re the CEO and can do anything you want. The rest of us..eh..you make us work overtime. Most studios do.

  • Strong Enough

    wow. someone is making money off those videos lmao

  • Mister Twister

    When the time comes, I will make a compilation of Don Bluth quotes.
