NOTES

Lasseter received consecutive gold medals in 1979 and 1980 at the Student Academy Awards.

"We're storytellers who happen to use computers. Story and characters come first and that is what drives everything we do. You can dazzle an audience with brand new technology but in the end people walk away from a movie remembering the characters." --Lasseter quoted in publicity material for "Toy Story"

"John knows how to create warm and appealing characters through this medium of computer animation better than anyone else in the universe and the work you see really comes from his heart and spirit, as much as it comes out of a computer box." --Thomas Schumacher, executive vice president of Walt Disney Feature Animation (from press kit for "Toy Story")
