Inside Out

Inside Out


Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city,
house and school.

The Many Particles of Joy

Joy is very bouncy, almost like a star. She’s full of life and energy, so filmmakers called on Effects Supervisor Gary Bruins and his team to figure out how to showcase that effervescence.

“Pete [Docter] wanted Joy to have particles that radiate and shoot off her skin throughout the entire film,” says Bruins. “That meant creating an effect that would appear in hundreds and hundreds of shots. It had never
been done before.” 


The Story of the Story

Mixed Emotions

Drawing With Your Inner Child


Joy

Joys goal has always been to make sure Riley stays happy. She is lighthearted, optimistic and determined to find the fun in every situation. Joy sees challenges in Rileys life as opportunities, and the less happy moments as hiccups on the way back to something great. As long as Riley is happy, so is Joy.

 

 

Sadness

None of the other Emotions really understand what Sadness’s role is. Sadness would love to be more optimistic and helpful in keeping Riley happy, but she finds it so hard to be positive. Sometimes it seems like the best thing to do is just lie on the floor and have a good cry. 

 

Anger

Anger feels very passionately about making sure things are fair for Riley. He has a fiery spirit and tends to explode (literally) when things don’t go as planned. He is quick to overreact and has little patience for life’s imperfections.  

 

Disgust

Disgust is highly opinionated, extremely honest and prevents Riley from getting poisoned – both physically and socially. She keeps a careful eye on the people, places and things that Riley comes into contact with – whether that’s broccoli or last year’s fashion trend. Disgust always has the best of intentions and refuses to lower her standards.

 

Fear

Fear’s main job is to protect Riley and keep her safe. He is constantly on the lookout for potential disasters, and spends time evaluating the possible dangers, pitfalls and risk involved in Riley’s everyday activities. There are very few activities and events that Fear does not find to be dangerous and possibly fatal. 

 

Riley

Riley Andersen is an eternally happy kid, at least until she turns eleven and her dad gets a job across the country, forcing the family to relocate to San Francisco. As she struggles to navigate a new home and school, Riley experiences an unfamiliar mix of emotions. 

 

Bing Bong

With the trunk of an elephant, the tail of a cat, and body of cotton candy, Bing Bong is Rileys imaginary friend. (You have to remember, when Riley was three animals were all the rage.) Unfortunately, hes been out of work since Riley turned four, and hes desperate to not be left behind as Riley grows up. 

 

Mom and Dad

With a new job and a brand new city, Riley’s Mom and Dad find themselves dealing with the ever-changing emotions of their once
happy daughter.

Mind vs Brain

“The film takes place in the mind, not the brain,” says Director Pete Docter. “We were very specific from the get-go. We didn’t want blood vessels and dendrites. The mind is metaphorical. We imagined our thought processes,
memories, feelings.”

But according to Daniel Holland, sets art director, the team used the physiology as reference. “We were inspired by shapes—the hypothalamus, pituitary gland, cells under a microscope,” he says. “Everything was heavily caricatured, but we wanted to start from somewhere that made sense.”   


Abstract Thought

Mapping The Mind


Headquarters

Headquarters is the control center in Riley’s mind where all five Emotions live and work, monitoring Riley’s day-to-day experiences and guiding her along the way. 

 

Dream Productions

Built and staffed like a full-fledged Hollywood studio, Dream Productions is where Rileys dreams (and nightmares) are created. The writers here are not afraid to take risks and often dance on the edge of logic when it comes to Rileys dreams. 

 

Imagination Land

“Imagination Land is where all of Rileys flights of fancy and daydreams are built full-size and come to life, says Docter. Its a place where you go to play.

 

 

Islands Of Personality

Rileys Islands of Personality are powered by core memories, which are memories of extremely significant times in Rileys life. 

 

Train Of Thought

The Train of Thought is an all-terrain choo-choo with a self-generating track that delivers daydreams, ideas and other thoughts to Headquarters. Its also used to transfer memories to different regions of Rileys mind. But take note: When Riley sleeps, so do the operators. 

 

Long Term Memory

Long Term Memory is a vast floor-to-very-high-ceiling storage facility that houses millions of Rileys memories. Long Term Memory is staffed by Mind Workers, including the Forgetters, who evaluate the usefulness of each memory and eliminate those that no longer seem relevant.
