Finding Inspiration for Pixar’s ‘UP’

The countdown to Pixar’s next film ‘UP’ is on. It opened Cannes film festival to much praise, the Hollywood premiere was this weekend, and the reviews are coming in (so far 100% positive on Rotten Tomatoes). Meanwhile, the rest of us wait until May 29th to get our chance.

For those who like a little behind the scenes magic with their animation, check out this article in the NY Times. It looks at the inspiration behind some of the films most major characters and provides a rather nifty interactive feature with some concept art and audio from Ricky Nierva, one of the films designers. Definitely worth your time.
