Sohn will attend the conference in person to discuss the creative journey he took to bring the story to the screen. “I’m so excited to welcome Peter Sohn to VIEW Conference 2023,” says conference director Maria Elena Gutierrez. “Peter is a true force of nature – a multi-talented storyteller, film director, animator, actor; you name it.
In bringing his unique energy and wisdom to VIEW Conference, he is certain to leave our global audience feeling energized and inspired.” Sohn has been with Pixar since 2000, working on such Pixar classics as “Finding Nemo,” “The Incredibles” and “WALL-E.” He directed the 2009 short film “Partly Cloudy” before making his feature directing debut with “The Good Dinosaur” in 2015.
In addition to working in the art, story and animation departments, Sohn has also voiced a number of Pixar characters, including Emile in “Ratatouille,” Scott “Squishy” Squibbles in “Monsters University” and SOX in last year’s “Lightyear.” Each October, the VIEW Conference brings together an array of industry professionals, thought leaders and enthusiasts to share insights about the fields of animation, VFX and games.Read more on variety.com
