Cinesnob talks to UP animator Guilherme Jacinto
As a young, aspiring animator, Guilherme Jacinto moved from his home country of Brazil to San Francisco to study at the Academy of Art University in 2003. With zero credits to his name, he hoped he could break into the very competitive animation industry on talent alone. You could say he started his career on the right foot when his very first professional job came to him by way of Pixar Animation Studios. His assignment: to work on a little film called “WALL-E.”
Now, Jacinto, 23, is ready to show off his second animated film also from Pixar. In “Up,” Jacinto works in the animation department and helps create a number of characters in the film including Carl Fredricksen, a retired 78-year-old balloon salesman who journeys to South America via floating house, and Russell, an 8-year-old Boy Scout who becomes a stowaway for the aerial adventure.
