Andrew Stanton short from 1988

Post by James » December 16th, 2008, 2:17 am

From the description:
1988, Apple was eager to show off the graphics power of its Macintosh II line of computers. Using a program called Super3D, a group of talented artists produced "Pencil Test," an animated short created entirely on the Macintosh. Keep in mind that QuickTime did not exist in 1988; the movie was output frame by frame to an imagesetter, and then recorded to film.
According to the credits, John Lasseter (who would have been at Pixar during this time) is listed as "Coach", while Andrew Stanton (who was not at Pixar yet IIRC) is listed as "Storyteller" and "Illustrator".

While it is obviously technologically crude by today's standards, the character still comes through, and it's all pantomimed as the best Pixar shorts are. You can see even from this early attempt where they're going with things...but slightly odd that Apple wouldn't have used Pixar itself to show off their power...what Pixar was doing at this time outweighed the results here and maybe Apple would have made more impact as revealing itself behind something more like what Pixar could do even then?

Still, fun little cartoon! :)

Ah, but you forget the soap opera involved here! Apple founder Steve Jobs had been forced out of the company he created in the mid 1980's. He then bought the group than would become Pixar. I doubt the management at Apple even bothered to ask for Pixar's help knowing they would have to go through Steve Jobs.

And, again IIRC, weren't Apple and Pixar technically competitors at that point? Wasn't Jobs allowing them to make the shorts in order to sell the "Pixar Computers"?

The point of this film was to show off the POWER of a Macintosh II computer.

I remember back in 1988 at an animation festival in Pasadena, watching this film. The HUGE gasps and applause that erupted when that "Rendered entirely on Macintosh computers" came up.

I have one which is sure to be a hit. It is called "Humorous Phases of Funny Faces" and dear me I seem to have run out of chalk.

I noticed that most of the songs are taken,this movie is all about sex in an exaggerated and it's pretty clear,also I noticed that all the marketing makes this movies looks like it's about a cute,happy,dancing little pinguine and it's a happy movie which isn't what this movie really is,they don't mention how he got banished or what happens once he gets to Miami.
