Luxo Jr History

On

How did a film based on director John Lasseter’s desk lamp come to be the symbol of Pixar?

There is clearly great significance to the short film that launched the two most iconic objects in the Pixar universe. Luxo Jr. was the first short film ever produced by Pixar Animation Studies. It originally debuted in 1986 at the SIGGRAPH conference (short for Special Interest Group on Computer GRAPHics and Interactive Techniques.) The reason the short is so important to the Pixar brand is because of how ground breaking it was at the time of its’ release. It was regarded a breakthrough in the field of CGI (computer-generated imagery.) What was so astonishing at the time was the ability of objects to shed light and shadows on themselves using shadow maps. Not only were the shadows important but also the power cords trail believably behind the moving lamps in an almost lifelike manner. The way the lamps came alive is what separated Luxo Jr. from other shorts at the time. It used not only photorealism to make the short look realistic; it used emotional realism to tell a story. When watching Luxo Jr. you often forget that it’s about two lamps and not two people. The way Pixar was able to make inanimate objects come to life in Luxo Jr. paved the way to give other inanimate objects life in Toy Story and Cars.

Luxo Jr. was not only ground breaking for Pixar but for the entire industry. It was won an Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film and it was the first computer-animated film to be nominated for an Academy Award. It has also been selected for preservation in the National Film Registry due to its “cultural, historical and aesthetical significance.” Luxo Jr. introduced the world to not only the Luxo Ball and lamp, but to a way of animation that paved the way for Pixar to become the company it is today.
