Pixar is known for its long development cycles; the Emeryville, California-based company can take years to churn out a new animated movie. Now fans will be able to get an oblique sneak peek inside the studios next film thanks to a new blog started by Lee Unkrich, a director and member of Pixars creative team.
The blog, simply called Lee Unkrich, will feature one image a day for the development cycle of the new, untitled film. That could mean a lot of updates. Unkrich already guessed, via his Twitter account, that he may be chronicling for up to four years.
Right now, the blog only has two entries. The first is captioned the starting line. Fans will already be wondering if thats a veiled reference to a new Cars or Toy Story sequel. The opening image a close-up of a Mac keyboard doesnt give away many clues. The second entry is titled my standard lunch and shows a bowl of broccoli and a sandwich. In other words, the blog looks like it will touch on things both central to the film and charmingly off-topic.
The blog is a nice way to share exclusive content with Pixar fans, but well see if Unkrich can actually keep up a photo-a-day for the entire development process.
Will a tantalizing photo blog help Pixar engage with fans or is it a little too self-serving? Let us know what you think in the comments.
