The film would go on The introduction of zen be the highest-grossing film of the year. There was tremendous buzz ahem about the film before it arrived here in Japan a few months later. Much of the talk focused on the stunning 3-D animation and the remarkable technical achievements by Pixar to pull this movie off.
I remember sitting in a movie theatre in the spring of in Osaka, Japan watching the film. I was a bit of a technology geek in those days so what propelled me to actually go see the film initially was the fact that it was the first truly digital animation feature film.
And yet the thing that impressed me about the movie was that I soon forgot all about how the animation was created and just remembered being engaged by the story. I wanted to see the film again and again. I thought it was perfect. Fast forward to today and I have seen every Pixar film ever made dozens of times.
I watch the films repeatedly because my kids ask to see them, and since our DVDs are in English the movies are more than mere entertainment. But truth be told, I love watching the Pixar films because I have learned so much about story structure, story elements, character, etc. Lasseter has said that the first 18 months of working on Toy Story was spent laboring just on the script, that is, the story.
And it is really, really hard to craft a good one. After shooting, the film is assembled in editing, which leaves most of what was shot on the cutting room floor. But animation is much too expensive to create a film in this way. Because animation is so expensive you have to edit the film before you actually make it, Jobs explains.
This is where storyboarding comes in. The story team has sketches of each scene which follow the progression of the script.
A film could have thousands of these. And invariably what you think is going to work crashes and burns when you see it in the reels. Pixar has a story crisis on every movie they make, says Jobs. When the story is not working, Jobs says, "we stop, we stop and we fix the story.
Because John Lasseter really instilled a culture of story, story, story. Even though Pixar is the most technologically advanced studio in the world, John has a saying which has really stuck: No amount of technology will turn a bad story into a good story.
Then you find out how important they think the story is. It is not about your visuals, and certainly not about the software tools you used to make those visuals.
But no amount of stunning visualization is going to save a story with a bad design or a presentation that is poorly thought out.This book appears to be a reprint of a book of this name by D.
It contains 3 chapters and 50 content pages. However, there is a book by Suzuki of the same name that contains 9 chapters--including the 3 chapters from the version--and (in my edition) about content pages.

In Chinese Chán and Korean Seon, the primary form of Koan-study is kanhua, "reflection on the koan", also called Hua Tou, "word head". In this practice, a fragment of the koan, such as "mu", or a "what is"-question is used by focusing on this fragment and repeating it over and over again:Who is it who now repeats the Buddha's name?
