Participates in 1 Session
Adrian Molina began at Pixar Animation Studios as a story intern in the summer of 2006. Since joining the studio full-time that fall, Molina has worked on the Academy Award®-winning feature films “Ratatouille” and “Toy Story 3,” and was a story artist for Disney•Pixar’s “Monsters University.” Most recently, Molina was tapped to serve as the co-director and writer on, “Coco,” released in November 2017. “Coco” has since earned a Golden Globe® award for “Best Animated Feature Film,” and two Academy Awards® for “Best Animated Film” and “Best Original Song” for “Remember Me.” As a story artist, Molina worked with a story team to sketch sequences of a film. This iterative process often involves working through alternative options until the best story is developed. Raised in Grass Valley, CA, Molina found inspiration in making home movies with his three siblings when he was growing up. He credits his parents for encouraging him to embrace his artistic and creative instincts, and his high school Literature program for teaching him how to be critical and aware of storytelling and structure. Prior to Pixar, Molina attended the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Character Animation. Molina currently resides in East Bay.
