From the event website:

"In this talk, Danielle Feinberg, Director of Photography for Lighting at Pixar Animation Studios, will discuss a series of problems faced while making various Pixar films and how the Pixar Animation Scientists used math and science to save the day!

Danielle Feinberg began her career at Pixar Animation Studios in February 1997 on the feature film A Bug’s Life. She quickly discovered her love for lighting and went on to light on many of Pixar’s feature films including Toy Story 2, Monsters, Inc., the Academy Award®-winning Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Ratatouille and WALL•E. Most recently, Feinberg completed work as the Director of Photography for Lighting on Disney•Pixar’s Academy Award®-winning Brave, and is now working on a future Pixar film.

Feinberg’s love of combining computers and art began she was eight years old, and first programmed a Logo turtle to create images. This eventually led her to a Bachelor of Arts in Computer Science from Harvard University. Now, in addition to her Pixar work, she works with teenage girls, encouraging them to pursue code, math and science by demonstrating to them the same beautiful simplicity she found with the programmed art of the Logo turtle.

Admission is free and open to the public. Seating, however, is limited, and we encourage you to reserve your seat in advance to ensure admission."
