DISNEY PIXAR NEW “BLUE UMBRELLA” SHORT!!!

So I went to see MONSTERS UNIVERSITY this weekend, and was excited to see PIXAR’S new short like they have before every new movie.  They called it BLUE UMBRELLA.  The style was quite different from their usual look, taking a much more photo realistic approach.  At some points I couldn’t tell if it was real footage composited with the 3D characters.  The music (by Sarah Jaffe) and the story worked perfectly, and it looked absolutely gorgeous.  Check out the trailer below!

PSYOP and WIEDEN+KENNEDY creates animation for WORLD OF COCA COLA in ATL!

PSYOP “on behalf of” WEIDEN + KENNEDY creates 6 min. long animation for the COCA COLA WORLD in ATLANTA titled, HAPPYFICATION!  This is not a new animation, although I had the pleasure of visiting the COKE Museum recently and was incredibly and pleasantly surprised when I sat down to watch this before going on my “self guided tour”.  Not only was the animation gorgeous, but the unique and original character design, the hilarious story, the vast world and of course, then catchy songs and smooooth voice-overs.  I recommend both the video and museum, although try not to make the same mistake I did by sampling ALL 65 different sodas from across the world…
