Pixar — the animation studio behind such hits as the “Toy Story” trilogy and, most recently, “Brave” — has named one of its buildings after the late Steve Jobs, reports “The Pixar Times” (http://macte.ch/3MBsD).
“Steve Jobs is often associated with Apple, but many often forgot that the visionary played a large role in the creation of Pixar,” the article says. “He financed the work at the studio long before it became profitable, pouring millions of his own money into keeping Pixar afloat because he believed in the work of the employees. After his death last year, some wondered how the animation studio would honor him. In the end credits of ‘Brave,’ there was a brief but touching tribute to Jobs. Now, the Jobs name has a more permanent home on Pixar’s campus – above the main entrance to the studio’s main building.”
