John Lasseter for Newsweek © Emily Shur 2008
I have a photo in the new issue of Newsweek of Pixar and Disney Chief Creative Officer, John Lasseter. As I said previously, this was a fun shoot with a great subject. This shoot was for the year end issue of Newsweek in which they rank their 50 most powerful people in the world, The Global Elite. John Lasseter is number 35. Not bad John, not bad at all. You managed to beat out losers like Osama Bin Laden, Pope Benedict XVI, and The Dalai Lama. Not to mention you are neck and neck with Steve Jobs.
If you aren’t already a lover of Pixar movies, I highly suggest using your holiday downtime to get with the program. Some of my all time favorite movies are made by Pixar….Finding Nemo, WALL-E, Toy Story, The Incredibles. All great. Smart, funny, and so fun to watch (look at). I guarantee you will like them, and if you don’t, I’m pretty sure you’re dead inside. It’s as simple as that. Happy holidays!
