The Road To Pixar is an independent student film which involves construction of a life sized replica of The Pizza Planet Truck as well as a road trip up the state of California.
The Pizza Planet Truck, which was first seen in Toy Story, is a running gag throughout almost all of Pixar's feature films.
The ImpactWe feel that movies inspire us through the course of most (if not all) of our lives, and Pixar movies are no different. We also like the disruptive nature of injecting pop culture into a living breathing society, hoping to engage people's curious nature. By building the Pizza Planet Truck and driving through California, we hope to blend the two.
Aside from getting a few heads to turn as we drive, we hope to interview as many people as possible about how they have grown up with the Pixar film canon (The Toy Story trilogy especially) and how it has effected their lives. Creating a video log of anecdotes from other fans childhood experiences as well as their recent history.
This is a project for anyone who enjoys films, Pixar films, pop culture or awesomeness on wheels.
What We Need & What You Get
We are raising funds for any kind of TLC that the truck would need as well as a few other project related items: paint job, light up rocket for the roof, passengers of the toy disposition. Any extra funding will go towards gas money, snacks, and prizes to hand out to those we meet on the road.
