Pixar's UP will be in UK cinemas from October 9th and in 3D in selected cinemas.

This latest CGI film is the story of an old man Carl and boy scout Russell who travel to South America by tying rather a lot of balloons to the house.

There were many interesting technical challenges for the animators as they chose to animate 10,000 balloons using physics and to promote their films this was done on a smaller scale with a real arm chair floated with balloons. Feathers, forest animals, the dog Dug, a Wedding dress and Carl's cube head and stubbly chin also challenged the Pixar animators who discussed some of the issues at presentation of UP at the Gnomon School
