Pixar files separation papers with Disney

They’re under contract to do 2 more movies, but after that, Pixar Animation is going solo.

They felt they were paying too high a distribution fee to Disney, Disney refused to negotiate a lower fee, so Pixar said, “You’re the Weakest Link, Good-bye.”

So it looks like Disney is set to lose a second hot property in 2005.

The other item of note in the above news story is the name of the CEO of Pixar. Steve Jobs. It’s not a coincidence, it’s the same guy. I had no idea someone could be the CEO of two companies simultaneously. I thought CEO was like a full-time job. But I guess it’s a fair bet that Pixar does its animation on Macs.

    Yep. Steve’s been there for quite a few years, before he went back to Apple, in fact. He’s done a lot of great things for the company.

    However, Pixar doesn’t use Macs for animating. I’m pretty sure they’re on a Linux system.
