Cinema Lumière Sala Mastroianni : “3dDAY - From Brave at Nemo.” Meeting with Joshua Hollander, Director of 3D Production della Pixar
Joshua Hollander joined Pixar Animation Studios in November 2000 as Modeling Coordinator on the Academy Award-winning feature film Finding Nemo. After a year in this role, he moved on to manage the studio’s first Character Department, also for Finding Nemo. Upon completion of his work in the Character Department, Hollander went on to work in Image Mastering as the Camera Manager for Finding Nemo and the Academy Award-winning feature film The Incredibles. On the 2005 feature Cars, Hollander served as Manager of Image Mastering and later became the Director of Image Mastering on the Academy Award-winning feature films Ratatouille and WALL•E. While working on WALL•E, Hollander began to assemble the team and processes for 3D production, and has continued to develop and oversee the department since then. As Director of 3D Production, Hollander oversees all aspects of stereoscopic production at the studio, including the new releases and the Catalog re-releases. Current projects in production include Disney•Pixar’s next feature film Brave, releasing on June 22, 2012, the 3D re-release of Finding Nemo, in select theaters on September 14, 2012, and the 3D re-release of Monsters, Inc, in select theaters on January 18, 2013, all releasing in Disney Digital 3D Prior to joining Pixar, Hollander worked in publicity and distribution in urban music in New York City, and as a Producer and DJ of underground hip-hop. He is on the Board of Directors at Youth Movement Records, a non-profit organization in Oakland, where he also mentors and teaches classes. Hollander has volunteered for other non-profit organizations including The Jane Goodall Institute and the Oakland Animal Shelter. A life-long enthusiast of film and animation, one of Hollander’s earliest influences was the Disney feature film Dumbo. This film brought forth his strong feelings about animal rights and environmental protection, as well as creating an appreciation for the art of storytelling through animated film. He also cites the classic 70s cartoons Herculoids, Thundarr the Barbarian, and Battle of the Planets as sparking his love of the medium. Raised on the upper west side of Manhattan, Hollander received a degree in Cultural Anthropology from New York University.
