Behind The Scenes

In the behind the scenes, they used clay models of the characters to get the main idea of it. A movie like up, takes several years to make. They had to use a black collie for Dug, a six year old for the boy scout, an old man for Carl. You can watch three behind-the-scene videos on CGI Explorer, a website about computer animation. The film clips show you how very different the final film looks from the process. You can even see where they go for inspiration — South America.

We had a friend, Albert Lozano, who worked for Pixar, and we got to Ichat with him. Albert did the sketches for Kevin, the big tall bird. Albert also worked on Incredible's, and Cars.

I hope that I will get to see Up when it comes out in theaters.
