Animation brings Pixar's characters to life. It also takes immense time, energy, and expertise. During the production of Up, each Pixar animator produced an average of 4 seconds of animation a week. That's about 96 still images that create the illusion of motion when played at 24 frames per second. #ScienceOfPixar
