Pixar's Made in Point Richmond DVD Rarities (found various Pixar footage; 1986-2000)
The Made in Point Richmond DVD.
Date found: 21 May '18
Found by: jaret35
In the beginning of 2001, sometime after completing For the Birds, Pixar made an employee exclusive DVD named Made in Point Richmond containing a selection of non-movie content that was made when they were based in the northern San Francisco Bay Area community of Point Richmond, California; like their television work, short work, F/X work, and party videos. What makes this DVD interesting is not only its collection of Pixar rarities otherwise lost or in inferior quality that are covered on this Wiki elsewhere most of their commercial division work, Blowin' in the Wind, and Jessie Patsy Montana Entertainer Award Acceptance Speech, but rarities possibly otherwise unknown about if it wasn't for their inclusion on the DVD.
On May 21, 2018, the whole DVD was uploaded as a disc image by LMW forum user jaret35 (ayeayematey on Discord). The uploaded disc image still retains it's CSS (or Content Scramble System) copyright protection; however LMW forums user TOMYSSHADOW has been able to remove it. It is available to download on Mega or Google Drive.
