Geri’s Game – A Pixar Short Film

As a chess mom, I thought it was fun to introduce my 7yo son who’s participating in a chess camp this summer.

I am currently reading the book “Creativity, Inc” written by Ed Catmill, one of the early folks and current president of Pixar. He talked about how Geri’s Game was given to the director as an assignment to explore how to animate people better. A couple of minutes into the short film, you’ll probably forget that Geri is animated, not a grumpy old man.
