The new Vancouver outpost gets a public viewing.
... On Thursday [Pixar] threw back the curtain on the 30,000 square foot facility it is creating inside the brick shell of an old office building in Gastown.
It also gave a preview of the 75-person studio’s first piece of entertainment, a five-minute cartoon entry in Pixar’s Tall Tales series featuring folksy tow truck Mater from its 2006 movie Cars. ...
The computer server room ... is big enough that Pixar needed BC Hydro to install a dedicated transformer to service the power load. ...
The studio is configured to make shorts, but that can always be altered, yes? Jobs is gone and the place is there to serve Diz Co., after all. So the idea that it will remain in some kind of pristine state and not serve the conglomerate that owns it is very likely wishful thinking.
When management traipses in to proclaim: "Nothing's going to change! We love this facility and all you fine, wonderful people just the way you are! ..." things are destined to change.
