Pixar Post - T.J.
While we're not 100% that this is a SparkShort (update below...this is a Pixar co-op film) — check out some of the details surrounding the short film, Automaton, which is set to premiere at SIGGRAPH 2020's Computer Animation Festival. Below is a summary of the announcement featured in our full post.

--
During the 2020 SIGGRAPH annual computer graphics conference, the world premiere screening of the latest Pixar co-op short film, Automaton (directed by Krzysztof Rost) will take place. It is unknown if the approximately 6-minute film is an official short film, a SparkShort, or a co-op produced short film (utilizing Pixar's internal resources after hours without a company-provided budget).

Updated: We have received confirmation that this is in fact a co-op film in much the same was as Borrowed Time was. A Pixar co-op film is an internal professional development initiative that allows employees to utilize Pixar's resources while crafting their own films with their own budgets. Essentially, the team works with Pixar's internal pipeline to ensure they're not stepping on the toes of any official Pixar projects — if they can find a time slot to work around, they're able to take advantage of the program, but it is not an official Pixar short and Pixar doesn't have any claim to the film.

Screening on Monday, August 24, 2020, between 6:35 and 6:41 PM PDT during the Computer Animation Festival, the short title image and synopsis have a serious look and tone.

SYNOPSIS:
Quote:
A poetic tale of a dust devil and a field of grass moves in the wind. Lightning interrupts a balletic interlude. A glowing ember precedes a raging fire. A wake of destruction deforms a landscape. A new beginning unfolds; a new world built.

This was spotted by our buddy, Luis at Pixar Brasil Blog who sent us a message with the heads up. We worked last night to compile a complete rundown of all of the SIGGRAPH Pixar presentations (summarized in this post) and then pulled together the Automaton summary this morning.

What do you guys think of the summary? We said it definitely sounds like a beauty-destruction-rebirth style film? We also have official definitions of Automaton, Dust Devil and a Bio of Krzysztof in our post.

Definitely interesting. On Pixar Brazil Blog, the sparkshorts logo was at the bottom of the logo for Automaton, but it could have easily been edited in.

Good catch - he and I were chatting last night and he felt strongly it was the next SparkShort. Although I tend to agree with him, since it wasn't officially announced as a SparkShort, we're holding back on calling it that until we hear for sure. He edited the SparkShorts logo into the Automaton logo.

It's official - this is a Pixar co-op project, so we'll move the thread to that category! We are still equally as excited by the prospect of this film and it sure looks like it's going to be a stunning film since it's created by folks from Pixar's FX department.
