 March 7, 2020 11:00 a.m.
Venue: Disney Family Museum


In recognition of Women's History Month, join members of Pixar's story department in this special panel. Moderated by Her Universe Founder and Designer Ashley Eckstein, hear from Story Supervisor Valerie LaPointe (Toy Story 4, 2019), Storyboard Artist Aphton Corbin (Toy Story 4, 2019), and Storyboard Artist Louise Smythe (Onward, 2020), as they discuss their "storied" journeys from humble beginnings to the top creative tier of Pixar. Learn about what it took for these talented women to get their unique story ideas, gags, and character arcs shown in blockbuster Pixar hits, and how they ensured that their work stands out from the rest of the competition.
