As part of the University of Aberdeen's May Festival, we are delighted to present a special Director's Cut featuring Gordon Cameron. Working at Pixar Animation Studios since 2002, Gordon will be interviewed by Prof. Alan Marcus on stage about his input into films such as Finding Nemo (2003), Ratatouille (2007), Toy Story 3 (2010) and Brave (2012). A native of Banff and graduate of the University of Aberdeen, Gordon Cameron has had an impressive career within the film industry that has resulted in his involvement in cutting edge developments in the field of animation and some of its biggest hits. Originally trained as a software developer, Gordon was a key member of the Pixar team which saw Brave, which featured the voices of Billy Connolly as King Fergus, Emma Thompson as Queen Elinor, Julie Walters as The Witch and Robbie Coltrane as Lord Dingwall, receive the Academy Award for Best Animated Film, in addition to a Golden Globe Award and BAFTA. The film built on Pixar's exceptional commercial and critical success with Finding Nemo, Ratatouille and Toy Story 3, which all received Academy Awards for Best Animated Film.
