When we asked Pixar if Meg LeFauve, the writer on Inside Out, was able to join us on our podcast, we were thrilled how willing and able the Pixar PR team was – we couldn’t have been happier to have Meg on, and her interview is a perfect example of the level of quality, intelligence, and passion that stems from the animation studio. Meg isn’t a regular part of the Pixar creative team – she was actually brought on through an assignment to work on Inside out, and she talks about the process as first being an outsider and what it was like working alongside Pete Docter and his incredible team.
There is so much covered in this interview, including inside scoops on various aspects of Inside Out that didn’t end up on screen, the extensive creative process it went through, but also Meg’s journey as an executive at Jodie Foster’s company for a decade and how she then parlayed that experience into a writing career. She offers an inspiring interview, talks about her upcoming mega project, Captain Marvel, and with so many valuable nuggets of writing advice, we can only hope that every writer listening has a pen and paper handy. If you haven’t seen Pixar’s Inside Out yet, it’s an absolute must. Enjoy the interview and thanks for listening.
