Danielle Feinberg began her career at Pixar Animation Studios in 1997 on the feature film A Bug’s Life. She quickly discovered her love for lighting and went on to light many of Pixar’s feature films including Toy Story 2, Monsters, Inc., the Academy Award-winning Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, and Ratatouille. Feinberg was the director of photography for lighting on Pixar’s Academy Award-winning films WALL-E and Brave and more recently Pixar’s film, Coco. Using a variety of popular animated movies, Danielle will present how realistic lighting was introduced to the animation process to create the magical experiences we’ve grown to love through animated films.
