About Inside Out

Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it's no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley's main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.

Directed by Pete Docter. Screenplay by Pete Docter, Meg LaFauve, and Josh Cooley.
Produced by Jonas Rivera.

In Theaters Nationwide on Friday, June 19th, 2015. Not yet rated. Provided courtesy of Disney•Pixar.

About the Guest

ALBERT LOZANO, Character Art Director, Pixar Animation Studios

Albert Lozano joined Pixar Animation Studios in April 1999 as the character art director on Pixar’s 2001 feature, “Monsters. Inc.” Lozano has worked on every Pixar feature since then including the Academy Award®-winning features “Finding Nemo,” “The Incredibles,” “Ratatouille,” “WALL•E,” and “Up.” Lozano most recently worked on Pixar’s upcoming feature film, “Inside Out,” set to release on June 19, 2015.

As the character art director, Lozano’s responsibility is to design the characters and shepherd them through the production process to make sure they appear as the films’ Production Designer and Director want them to.

An avid cartoon watcher as a child, Lozano was inspired to study animation at an early age. Some of his earliest inspirations were “Dumbo,” “Tom and Jerry” and cartoons from Tex Avery, John Hubley and Richard Williams. Like so many Pixar artists, Lozano attended CalArts to study animation. After sneaking into Bob Winquist’s character design class during a campus visit, Lozano had the good fortune of seeing Pete Docter’s Academy Award®-winning short “Next Door.” It was upon seeing this short film that Lozano knew he wanted to attend CalArts.  Little did he know that his first project at Pixar would be working with Docter on “Monsters, Inc.”

Lozano grew up in Los Angeles where he attended school and worked in various television and film studio jobs. He currently resides in Oakland, CA.
