Pixar first announced the SparkShorts program on January 18, 2019.[1] The program consists of giving employees at Pixar six months and a limited budget to develop indie short films, all of them based on personal experiences.[2] The program was developed in order to find new filmmakers at Pixar.[2] Bobby Rubio, writer/director of the SparkShort film Float, described the program as “different film from the kinds of films” developed at Pixar, while Lindsey Collins said that the shorts are referred to as SparkShorts because Pixar “[wants] to discover that creative spark” in its employees.[2] Jim Morris said: “The SparkShorts program is designed to discover new storytellers, explore new storytelling techniques, and experiment with new production workflows”, adding that it “[provides] an opportunity to unlock the potential of individual artists and their inventive filmmaking approaches on a smaller scale than [Pixar’s] normal fare”.[3]
