Jim Capobianco and Wall-E End Titles

Jim Capobianco has been a story artist for quite a while, working on films like Bug's Life, Monsters Inc., and Finding Nemo and Ratatouille, for which he was nominated to the Oscars for best original screenplay. He's currently working on the sequel of his next short animated film Leonardo and has also notably directed the end titles for Wall-E.

Wall-E's end title sequence is basically an art history tour depicting the rebirth of earth and how the humans survived and developed after the events in the story.
Reading the interview available from this link you can see how much work and research it must  have taken to design each of these shots and animate them.

Thinking about what we've learned in class so far, I could probably see myself being able to re-create some of the simpler parts of this sequence, such as the cave painting and greek pottery animation bits. Of course it starts getting more complicated after that, but hopefully I'll get there one day.
