Pixar's Short Film 'The Blue Umbrella' Gets a Beautiful New Poster
Pixar Animation Studios presents their new short The Blue Umbrella, directed by Saschka Unseld. What a beautiful poster. Premiering at the Berlin Film Festival currently underway in Germany as we speak is this short film from Pixar, which will be playing in front of Monsters University later this summer. It will also be premiering at the SXSW Film Festival in March in Austin (both logos are on the poster). Vulture premiered this beauty, which features a varied selection of black umbrellas lined up and our two lovers, the blue & red ones. Perfect, everything about this is sublime and it's just for an animated short. But I love it, even the font.
The Blue Umbrella is the creation of 36-year-old Saschka Unseld, who has worked in Pixar's camera and staging department since 2008. "The six-minute film is about a blue umbrella that takes a fancy to a red umbrella and, in trying to follow that fancy, gets weather-beaten and wind-blown during a rainstorm." It's attached to play in front of Pixar's Monsters University prequel this June. Unseld has worked at Pixar in the camera and staging department since 2008. Prior to that, he went to film school in his native Germany and later started an animation company with friends, where they made animated short films for television.
