The Art of Animating UP
When work on the movie UP started, Pixar didn’t have the technology to animate more than 50 balloons at a time. The goal was to animate 50,000 balloons to lift up Carl’s home in the movie, so they had to extremely upgrade their technology. How did the upgrade go? Eventually they were able to animate 130,000 balloons! This and more as Scott takes you through what it was like to be an animator in the award-winning film UP!


About Scott
Scott Clark joined Pixar Animation Studios in January 1996 as the animation department's first intern.  Shortly after graduating with a degree in Illustration from the Rhode Island School of Design that same year, he joined Pixar fulltime.  
Scott’s first assignment was as an animator on A Bug’s Life.  He also served as an animator on Toy Story 2, and the Academy Award®-winning short and feature films Geri's Game, Finding Nemo, and The Incredibles.  Scott directed the animated presentation of the 2000 Academy-Award® nominees for Best Animated Short Film and was a Directing Animator on Monsters, Inc.
Scott was the Supervising Animator for the Golden Globe®-winning feature film, Cars, and the Academy Award®-winning feature film, Up. Most recently, Scott served as an animator on Disney•Pixar’s upcoming feature film Toy Story 3, scheduled for release on June 18, 2010.
In addition to his work at Pixar, Scott taught computer animation at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco for nearly 10 years, and studied acting at the American Conservatory Theater.
Scott was born in Chicago, Illinois and grew up outside of Louisville, Kentucky. He has been drawing all his life and fell in love with animation when he took his first animation class from the Louisville Art Association in the 7th grade.

Master Class

This class will cover the very basics of Character Sculpture, from armature building, to roughing out a basic form of a character of your choosing.

Jerome will take participants through his sculpture and how it is used at Pixar.

Participants will learn how to take a 2-D character design or caricature from the page to a 3-D clay model. Instruction will include how to construct a sufficient armature, how to mass-up a form, interpreting a design into three dimensions, and how and when to start bringing in details.

All participants should bring a design drawing of any character, no Monsters or creatures to the class. Minimum requirement is a design consisting of a head and neck.

These designs should be no bigger than 9 inches and no smaller than 6 inches. Maximum design allowed is from the waist up.



About Jerome
Jerome Ranft joined Pixar Animation Studios in 1997. As half of a two-man sculpting team at Pixar, Ranft has sculpted characters from many of Pixar’s films including A Bug’s Life, Toy Story 2, Monsters Inc., Cars, and the Oscar® winning features Finding Nemo, Ratatouille, WALL•E and Up. In Up, Ranft not only contributed his sculpting, but also his voice talent skills to the character of Gamma. Ranft most recently completed work on Disney•Pixar’s upcoming feature film, Toy Story 3, scheduled for release on June 18, 2010.
As a sculptor, using his own hand-made tools and working with oil-based clay and plasticine, Ranft may create up to thirty versions of a film’s character before a final design is selected. Ranft’s sculpture work has been showcased in the Pixar: 20 Years of Animation exhibition that kicked off at The Museum of Modern Art in New York in December 2005.
Prior to Pixar, Ranft worked for Skellington Productions, sculpting models and characters from The Nightmare Before Christmas and James and the Giant Peach. He attended California College of the Arts in Oakland, where he earned his fine arts degree in sculpture.
