Working as a Consultant with Disney Consumer Products, I created the brand packaging for A Bug’s Life retail products. I was later invited to the film’s world premiere, November 14, 1998, at the El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles, where I was able to meet the Pixar and Disney animators that created the film.
A Bug’s Life was the first home video release to be entirely created using a digital transfer. Every frame of animation was converted from the film’s computer data, as opposed to the standard analog film-to-videotape transfer process. This allowed for the film’s DVD release to retain its original 2.35:1 widescreen format.
