Pixar has always been pushing the edge when it comes to photorealism in their movies, but it’s always in the little things you may not notice such as water or a character’s hair. However, the stunning animation will be difficult to ignore in their upcoming short film, The Blue Umbrella. A brief clip has been released online, and it’s tough to believe that Pixar didn’t shoot live-action footage and then place animated faces on top of it.
Hit the jump to check out the clip. The Blue Umbrella will play in front of Monsters University, which opens June 21st.
