Creativity, Inc: Author Ed Catmull -- As a young man, Ed Catmull had a dream: to be an animator and an artist. When he learned he lacked the natural talent for hand-drawn animation, he turned to his other passion: physics, and then computing. That pivot eventually drove a desire within Catmull to make the first computer-animated movie. He eventually forged a partnership with George Lucas -- an alliance that led, indirectly, to his founding Pixar Animation Studios with Steve Jobs and John Lasseter in 1986. Nine years later, Pixar released "Toy Story," the first feature-length film created entirely on computers. It changed animation forever. Ed Catmull appears in conversation with John Hollar, CEO of the Computer History Museum. This program was originally recorded on May 8th, 2014.
