CNN talks with the people of Pixar to figure out how they churn out hit after hit. Up director Pete Docter says “I don’t really think it’s much of a secret. I think it comes down to two basic things: one is that we’re run by artists… Second, we have some pretty great people that they’ve managed to collect here”. Producer Jonas Rivera adds, “One of the things that I really love about [Pixar] is that no matter what you do, if you’re a production assistant or a producer or a marketing executive or running the kitchen, everyone here thinks like filmmakers”.
