Ronnie del Carmen on Up’s Progress… Directing the Movie Based Short?

Story supervisor, Ronnie del Carmen, talks about what’s Up at Pixar, exclusively as a guest blogger on D23.

Specifically, what’s up with Up! Of course, the movie is just about finished but they’re still touching up the lighting on the final shots of the film. He talks about what an amazing experience it is to storyboard the sequences, and then see them come to life right before your eyes at dailies.

Ronnie also gives us a hint at his next project. "I’m working on some super-cool content you’ll see on the DVD release of Up!" Hmmm… Is he hinting at the Up short film, might he be directing it?

We’ll just have to wait and see, but for now, read del Carmen’s thoughts on Pixar’s highly anticipated 10th film!

The whole piece is over at Disney twenty-three!

(Thanks, Jason)

    What a GREAT POST! Thank you for sharing. Would be great to have a Pixar blog like this on one of their upcoming films, with many of the artists on the film explaining what they do and what they’re going through to finish a film. Even if it were only a few months before the film came out.

    Great interview. I wish they didn’t get rid of the thing about Russell and his badge, it’s really pretty deep and shows how dedicated Russell is.

    Bryko614, it’s not Russell he talked about.

    I see, but Carl has his little badge in the movie, and…well, it’s difficult to explain.

    Such a lovely interview. Like the first Anonymous stated, it would be interesting if Pixar had their own blog — or, better yet, their own magazine — so as information of this nature could be shared more frequently.

    I also wish that the backstory involving the badge hadn’t been omitted from the final film. Perhaps it will be included on the “Up” DVD as a storyboard panel or deleted scene….

    Thanks for the link, Jason and martini!

    It’s a patch on a jacket, not a badge.

    I think I know whom he talked about, but we’ll know even if that scene won’t be in the final film.
