Just to be clear in case any new members don't know, I LOVE PIXAR. Love them! And a Pixar HISHE of any title has been something I personally have feared because well, our drawings are 2d and you know... Pixar with it's unlimited capabilities and superior animation power it just seemed like the dumbest thing to ever try... It would never live up to the quality of a real pixar film... people would just think it's a waste... That's the negative voice that clouds my head sometimes. (you gotta tell that voice to hit the road) And even though we had lots of requests for Wall-E and Up, it just didn't feel right making our first pixar HISHE attempt after those two titles, so we waited. Then Toy Story 3 came along. Then our Best Picture Summary came along. After I drew one painting of the toystory cast at the city dump I thought we could pull this off.So enter the first problem: Toy Story 3 is perfect. Yeah you could go the depressing route and let the toys perish in the flames, but that's evil and no fun to animate (at least for me) So what could we make that would still entertain an audience? We watched the movie Lots of times and came up with pretty much nothing. After lots of discussion the two things we settled on were, Lotso's anger issues and Andy giving away his toys. So the script began from there.Now the second problem: Toy Story voices are all RIDICULOUSLY hard to impersonate! We had our little tryout for the voice of Woody and sadly didn't get much feedback. But thank you very much to everyone who did respond. The fact that you wanted to help was very refreshing to have during this project. We love our fans :) In the end the role went to my friend Kyle Rodgers (first time voice on a HISHE project) who recorded his part remotely and made this our first remote voice recording in a HISHE short. But with out a good voice for Woody, we were going to be in trouble. So Kyle saved the day there.Third problem: Art was all over the place! While producing another short at the same time as toystory, the artwork for this short could not have been more overwhelming. Toy Story characters are all very detailed and VERY colorful, so getting through all the compositions was a serious task, but I am very happy with the final look of the short. So rather than just continue this play by play of how we made it. I think I should just say instead, Thank you to all the close friends I have that helped complete this short. This was an extremely important short to finish properly in my HISHE bucket list, and they really came in waves and helped me at the drop of a hat.

This has been one of my favorites to see through to the end. Thank you all who were a part of this, and thank you Pixar for constantly being an inspiration.
