A Peek at a New Fable: “La Luna” Share it with Your Family… Sure to be a Favorite!

La Luna from Pixar

La Luna from Pixar

La Luna is the timeless fable of a young boy who is coming of age in the most peculiar of circumstances.

Tonight is the very first time his Papa and Grandpa are taking him to work. In an old wooden boat they row far out to sea, and with no land in sight, they stop and wait.  A big surprise awaits the little boy as he discovers his family’s most unusual line of work.

Should he follow the example of his Papa, or his Grandpa?

Will he be able to find his own way in the midst of their conflicting opinions and timeworn traditions?

We know our audience likes to see video clips – but this is not a feature film, it’s a short. Yes, it’s a short film with a total run time of just under 7 minutes long.

Meet Enrico Casarosa, Director / Head of Story, Pixar Animation Studios

This short film was directly by Enrico Casarosa who joined Pixar Animation Studios in January 2002.  Enrico began working as a story artist on “Cars” and the Academy Award-winning feature “Ratatouille.”  Casarosa’s next project was as story artist on Disney•Pixar’s Academy Award®-winning feature film, “Up.” Most recently, Casarosa made his directing debut with the short film, “La Luna.” Currently, Casarosa is working as head of story on an upcoming Pixar film.

What do story artists do?

As a story artist, Casarosa creates visual sequences from the script.  Story artists also generate new ideas and gags, and provide feedback regarding the plot, characters and overall story of the film.  With help from story artists, the film’s director finds the story they want to tell and the best cinematographic way to tell it.

Where did Enrico learn how to do animation? What influenced his style?

Casarosa found early influences in Hayao Miyazaki’s work and grew up watching Miyazaki’s television series in Italy. Born and raised in Genoa, Casarosa moved to New York City in his twenties, to study animation at the School of Visual Arts and Illustration at the Fashion Institute of Technology.

 What did Enrico do before he came to Pixar?

Before coming to Pixar, Casarosa worked as a storyboard artist at Blue Sky Studios on “Ice Age” and “Robots.”  He also worked as a background designer and storyboard artist for a number of Disney Channel Television Series’ including “101 Dalmatians” and “PB&J Otters.”

Where does Enrico live?

Casarosa lives in San Francisco, California with his wife Marit and their little daughter Fio Giulietta.

Here’s a video with some of the highlights of what’s new at Disney – including a sneak peek at La Luna! Enjoy
