    In conjunction with the premiere of Disney•Pixar’s Cars 2, Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures released this photo essay of a day in the life of film director John Lasseter.

    [​IMG]
    A WORKING COMMUTE (8:13 a.m.) - Lasseter rides instead of driving to work, allowing precious minutes to review "Cars 2" materials on an iPad. Supervising technical director Apurva Shah created a special application for Lasseter that allows the director to record notes verbally and email his feedback to the appropriate department.

    [​IMG]
    A GRAND ENTRANCE (8:52 a.m.) – Lasseter chats with fellow Pixarian A.J. Riebli, a Sonoma County neighbor, upon arrival at Pixar Animation Studios.

    [​IMG]
    BEHIND THE DESK (9:43 a.m.) - With hundreds of "Toy Story" toys looking on, Lasseter reviews a "Cars 2" trailer on his office computer.

    [​IMG]
    BREAKFAST WITH A SIDE OF "CARS 2" (10:09 a.m.) - Jim Murphy, director of creative artists, stops to chat while "Cars 2" producer Denise Ream and assistant Heather Feng review materials - and breakfast - with Lasseter at Pixar's Luxo Cafe.

    [​IMG]
    IN UNIFORM (10:27 a.m.) - Producer Denise Ream joins Lasseter en route to a meeting. The "Cars 2" director dons his daily uniform, a Hawaiian shirt themed to his current project (this one features "Cars" characters). Lasseter currently has 350 Hawaiian shirts in rotation.

Though the group shares lunch every day, today&#8217;s topic of conversation is Pixar&#8217;s museum exhibit that is traveling the world.

    [​IMG]
    WE'RE WALKING (1:15 p.m.) - Lasseter walks with production manager Jake Martin to his next meeting, passing by a stunning and heartwarming piece of concept art from "Toy Story 3" that measures 11 feet by 22 feet.

    [​IMG]
    MAKIN&#8217; THE ROUNDS (1:22 p.m.) &#8211; Lasseter begins a regular animation walk-through in animator Jean Claude Tran&#8217;s office, reviewing shots and giving notes like only he can. Animation coordinator Max Sachar and supervising animator Shawn Krause look on and record the feedback.

    [​IMG]
    NEXT! (2:04 p.m.) &#8211; Lasseter continues his animation walk-through in animator Tim Hittle&#8217;s office with supervising animators Dave Mullins and Shawn Krause looking on.

    PARTY! (2:43 p.m.) - Lasseter breaks from his duties to share a toast in the Pixar atrium with character art director Jay Shuster, celebrating his last day on the "Cars 2" production with several crew members. Shuster officially moves on to another film.

    [​IMG]

    This isn't an official release from Disney, but it's an interesting article none the less regarding "Cars 2." The New York Times published an article on July 1 talking about the conflict between Pixar's creativity and Disney's quest to exploit franchises for cash.
