Film: Monsters Inc. Pixar are a good example of a company that uses animation in film. They have created the films Toy Story, Monsters Inc., The Incredibles, Finding Nemo and Wall E, to name a few. These were all created using computer generated imaging, also known as CGI. Pixar have developed their own software for this process, called RenderMan.
The use of animation in films such as these is to allow for creative storylines in imaginary worlds, or to create realistic characters that could not be portrayed any other way. This appeals mostly to children, but adults also appreciate the technical skill and storylines of these animated films.
Fact: When Monsters Inc was released in 2001, it made $100 million in nine days, faster than any other animated film in history.
