Up in 120 frames. * SPOILER WARNING* If you haven’t seen the movie yet (what are you waiting for??) DO NOT click through to the larger image as you will see some plot details (don’t look too closely at the above image either).

That warning having been given, there is even more delicious goodness on the Art of Up (same spoiler warning) by Lou Romano.

Here is some of the development & production work I did on UP (2005-2008). Similar to the work from The Incredibles, (production paintings, color/lighting design and artistic direction) this was done to help inspire the look of the film.

Lost of pictures, art, drawings, videos, etc. All a wonderful glimpse behind the scenes of a great movie.

New trailer just out for Pixar’s new movie “Up.”

The color palette and texture in this new movie looks nothing short of gorgeous. I was so taken by the look of the trailer that I had to play it again just to find out what it was about. I also had to wipe a little drool from the corner of my mouth.

I’ve posted some screenshots of some of the more luxurious shots here. Just look at the texture on that kid’s uniform. Man, that’s nice

News today that Johnathan Ive, Apple’s design mastermind, consulted on a character in Pixar’s Wall-E:

”’I wanted Eve to be high-end technology – no expense spared – and I wanted it to be seamless and for the technology to be sort of hidden and subcutaneous,’ Andrew Stanton, Wall-E’s director, told Fortune. ‘The more I started describing it, the more I realized I was pretty much describing the Apple playbook for design.’”

Through a spokesman, Ive declined to comment.

Fun artist profile over at CGSociety of Jason Deamer, one of the character designers on Pixar’s latest flick Ratatouille. I saw the movie last night and like John thought it was excellent. Superbly written and animated, and it has much appeal to those of us over 20 (or over 30 (or over 40, Tadd)).
