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.

Definitely worth your time.
