“Ricky [Nierva] and I talked a lot about the idea of having rolling hills and curving paths and buildings behind buildings, so that you felt like there was always something around the corner. Because that’s what college life is like; that’s what being that age is like. You feel like you could do anything, like there’s something new wherever you go.” —Dan Scanlon
“Dan Scanlon’s message through Monsters University helped me realize it’s ok to change your goals in life. It doesn’t mean you’re being a traitor to yourself. It’s ok to embrace change. I can’t thank Pixar enough for making a movie with such a healing message.”
FUN FACT: An early look at our drum corps movie (“Scouts Honor: Inside a Marching Brotherhood”, which focuses on three members of the Madison Scouts drum and bugle corps), inspired the filmmakers behind Pixar’s “Monsters University” to hire the Blue Devils for soundtrack work on this popular animated feature film.
