Animation and FX Artists: Pete Docter
Pete DocterPete Docter was one of the first animators hired by Pixar Animation Studios where he served as the animation supervisor for the hit animated movie Toy Story. He also helped write and storyboard Toy Story.

Docter's name became big with his first directoral debut - Monsters, Inc. which holds the record for the biggest opening weekend ever for an animated production.

Docter's other Pixar credits include animating and directing commercials for Tropicana Fruit Juice, Tetra-Pak drink box recycling and Lifesaver Holes at the beach. Docter's interest in animation began at age 8 when he made his first flipbook. He went on to study character animation at CalArts (California Institute of the Arts) in Valencia, where he produced several student films, including the Student Academy Award-winning Next Door.

Prior to joining Pixar, Docter was involved in creating hand-drawn animation for Disney, Bob Rogers and Company, Bajus-Jones Film Corp. and Reelworks in Minneapolis.
