Client       Disney
Studio      Ignition Interactive
Date         June, 2009
 
The UP website follows the adventures of Carl and Russell as they search for Paradise Falls. The team at Ignition worked directly with the team at Disney / Pixar to create and concept custom animations and environments for every section of the site.

Ignition was also tasked with building out the ad campaign. The campaign was focused more on character development for the film beyond Carl and Russell. All of the characters we featured by themselves to push specific characters to specific demographics. Doing this gave Disney a vast reach for a classic Pixar film that is younger audience driven, but had wide appeal to the older audience.

As the designer and animator I was responsible for production design and animation on the website. My role on the ad campaign was lead designer working along side the Art Director and Creative Director. As well as lead motion designer and production flash developer. All animations of characters were provided by Pixar. Custom animation was then integrated with the character animations to create a unique execution for each ad size.
 
This is an old project but is still one of my favorites and one of the first major projects I was apart of in my career. So figured I should share with everyone. Thanks for viewing.
