It is thought by some that Joe Ranft was the secret weapon for the quality of Bay Area animated films: Nightmare, and all the Pixar films. Some might even go so far as to say that Joe was a catalyst for the "Story is King" revival that has breathed new life into modern animated film.

As many of you have probably heard by now, Joe Ranft died in a car accident on Tuesday.

In the last few years I have tried to take to heart that advice that story is so important. And the best place I learned about it was, of course, from Pixar DVDs. So I know that many, many of the things that I've learned while making this film, I've learned from Joe.

He will be greatly missed.
