12 Things You Didn't Know About Pixar

1. Pixar Has An Internal University


If you've ever wondered how someone who joins Pixar manages to orientate themselves with the many facets of everything from story-boarding to animating to marketing and the deadlines that come with a film's release, well, you might not be too shocked to hear that Pixar has its own internal education system.

Pixar University is a company-run education and training operation, and acts as a way of constantly improving veteran employees as well as new recruits. The University offers everything from classes in lighting and shading to 2D animation, figure drawing, and live action film-making.
