The digital arts festival Trojan Horse was a Unicorn (THU) has announced Pixar will be heading a 20 company-strong recruitment day in September 2015, days after early bird tickets sold out. This year’s sophomore event featured guests such as Bladerunner art legend Syd Mead and Avatar Oscar-winning Andrew R Jones, as well as lead creatives from ILM, MPC, Blizzard and Framestore. Pixar’s unprecedented recruitment at an indie event reflects THU’s steady rise as the most artist-centred event of the year, being described by Digital Domain co-founder and ex-head of Industrial Light and Magic Scott Ross as, “Burning Man meets TED”. Take a look at some of the speakers of THU 2014, and get tickets for THU 2015.
