The Making of Disney Pixar Up

Disney Pixar's Up is the first movie which they have created using 3D technology. The 3D effects are used to enhance the story telling and visual impact of the movie. 3D so rarely works and can be distracting but of course Disney Pixar takes the technology for this movie to a whole different level. Wall-s was stunning in it's visual images but Up takes this to an even higher level.

The director John Docter and 11 animators made 3 day journey to the remote Monte Raraima in Venezuala for inspiration. They also visited Matawi Tepui, climbed to Angel Falls and spent time in Brazil so that they could capture the look and feel of Carl's great adventure.
