The project's intentionally obscure CIA cryptonym is made up of the digraph MK, meaning that the project was sponsored by the agency's Technical Services Stafffollowed by the word Ultra which had previously been used to designate the most secret classification of World War II intelligence. They often conducted experiments without the subjects' knowledge or consent. Subproject 54 was another MKUltra effort and was the Navy's top secret "Perfect Concussion" program, which was supposed to use sub-aural frequency blasts to erase memory. However, the program was never carried out.
Development[ edit ] Talk of a sequel to Toy Story began around a month after the film's opening, in December Lasseter described how the boy's excitement to show it to his father touched him deeply.
Lasseter realized that his character no longer belonged to him only, but rather it belonged to others, as well.
The memory was a defining factor in the production of Toy Story 2, with Lasseter moved to create a great film for that child and for everyone else who loved the characters. Roth was pleased and embraced the idea of a sequel. Instead, Lasseter turned to Ash Brannona young directing animator on Toy Story whose work he admired.
Brannon, a CalArts graduate, joined the Toy Story team in I'm a big toy collector and a lot of them are like antiques, or one-of-a-kind toys, or prototypes the toy makers have given me.
Well, I have five sons, and when they were little and they loved to come to daddy's work, and come in into daddy's office and they just want to touch and play with everything. And I was sitting there saying 'Oh no, that's uh, you can't play with that one, oh no, play with this one, oh no Because toys are manufactured, put on this Earth, to be played with by a child.
That is the core essence of Toy Story. And so I started wondering, what was it like from a toy's point of view to be collected? The obsessive toy collector named Al McWhigginwho had appeared in a draft of Toy Story but was later expunged, was inserted into the film.
The extra material would be a challenge, since it could not be mere padding—it would have to feel as if it had always been there, an organic part of the film. There, he hosted what he called a "story summit", a crash exercise that would yield a finished story in just two days.
Back at the office that Monday, Lasseter assembled the company in a screening room and pitched the revised version of Toy Story 2 from exposition to resolution. The original film's original opening sequence featured a Buzz Lightyear cartoon playing on television, which evolved into the Buzz Lightyear video game that would be shown in the opening Toy Story 2.
The idea of a squeak-toy penguin with a broken squeaker also resurfaced from an early version of Toy Story. The Interactive Products Group, with a staff of 95, had its own animators, art department, and engineers. Steve Jobs made the decision to shut down the computer games operation and the staff became the initial core of the Toy Story 2 production team.
