Pixar’s animated features have a kind of magic all their own. In this article, Pixar animator Bernhard Haux shares eight lessons in creativity:
Lots of hard work, tiny but amazing results. When Pixar created Brave, deleted scenes that didn’t make the final cut would have made the movie 5 times as long. A ton of little visual jokes didn’t make the movie.

That’s a lot of amazing stuff, to get very little. That means what we actually see is of incredible quality.
