Paul joined Pixar in 1999 during the production of toy story 2 and has supervised the post production on all feature and short films since then. He is responsible for many of the efforts that take place outside of the studio including actor recording sessions, music composition and recording, international translations and theatrical quality control. Cichocki also works very closely with the Skywalker Sound team where all of the studios films have been edited and mixed.

ABOUT PAUL CICHOCKI:

Paul Cichocki joined Pixar Animation Studios in 1999 and has supervised the post production on all feature and short films since then. This includes Toy Story 2, Monsters, Inc., Academy Award-winning Finding Nemo, Cars, Academy Award-winning Ratatouille, WALL•E, UP and the most recently released feature film, TOY STORY 3. Inspired by a film’s ability to touch people directly all over the world, Cichocki knew he wanted to make movies after his very first screening. As Post Production Supervisor at Pixar, he works very hands-on with each production, one feature at a time.

Paul is responsible for many of the efforts that take place outside of the studio including actor recording sessions, music composition and recording, international translations and printing, and domestic release printing. Cichocki also works very closely with the Skywalker Sound team.

He is one of only a handful of individuals at Pixar who work on every single film. Prior to coming to Pixar, Cichocki worked as a Film Editor and Assistant Film Editor for fifteen years in Los Angeles. He is credited on a number of live-action feature films, including many on which he supervised digital effects. He came to the Bay Area to work as an Effects Supervisor on Star Wars: Episode 1, and has lived in northern California ever since.
