Get ready to tap your feet and hum along to this swinging, soulful, behind-the-scenes featurette produced by Lee Brunatti. The piece explores how Pixar’s “Soul” animates the often ethereal elements of music and brings authenticity to the jazz performances in the film. Director Pete Docter, and his team visited clubs in New York to get a better understanding of the scene: “We would just go up and talk to musicians and ask them, how did you get here?” he said in an interview with the New York Times. “We tried to really flesh out the world of those characters.” Pixar also brought on the jazz legend Jon Batiste, who created original compositions for the movie. Batiste recorded the music with a band in a New York studio, and Docter captured those sessions with multiple cameras and around eighty GoPros. Filmmakers then studied the video to get a more accurate picture of how to animate the scene.
