brave2Brave, the latest 3-D movie from Pixar Animation Studios that opens June 22, was made with help from Pixar staffers who are former students at Texas A&M’s Department of Visualization.

Aggie “Vizzers”ย were instrumental in creating the adventure-filled world in which Princess Merida defies a custom that brings chaos to her Scottish kingdom while relying on her bravery and archery skills.

Texas A&M’s Master’s of Science in Visualization program, offered through the Department of Visualization at the College of Architecture, has provided a steady stream of leaders in the growing field of digital and electronic visualization since the program began in 1989. ย  Graduates have achieved success as creative directors, computer animators, university professors and software designers, with the majority working in the animation, visual effects and electronic gaming industries.

Aggie “Vizzers” can be found among the leading creative talent at Pixar, Blue Sky, Industrial Light & Magic, DreamWorks/PDI, LucasFilm Animation, Reel FX Creative Studios, Walt Disney Animation, Rhythm & Hues and Sony Pictures Imageworks. They have been integral members of the teams behind such recent blockbusters as Cars 2, Rango, Rio, Tangled, Harry Potter ย and Pirates of the Caribbean.
