MSN sets the spotlight on John Lasseter, in its “The Edge of Innovation” section. In referring to his latest Pixar film Cars, Lasseter recently told a group of car designers in New York, “The obvious thing to do when you draw an animated car is to put the eyes in the headlights. But we’ve got the eyes in the windshields. It gives us a lot more to work with; you don’t just have flat face on the front of a car, but the hood becomes the nose and you can work a lot more expression into it. Besides, when we’re inside a car, we look out the windows. This way, our characters see the world from where we’d see it, and that makes it a better way to tell stories.” Cars will race into theaters on June 9, 2006.
