Take the Scenic Route meets Up, Up and Away

While stumbling through the internet today, we came across this vintage style poster which reminded us of one of our most popular posts here on mixingreality.  In doing some research to find the source of the image, we came across this tidbit : The fictional “Paradise Falls” in the 2009 Pixar film “Up” was inspired by Angel Falls.  The production staff toured this area of Venezuela prior to the making of the film. Angel Falls actually plunges off the edge of a tepui, or table-top as referred to in the poster.  It looks as if this is a poster designed for the production “Up”, so the resemblance to the balloon house based on it, is no accident.  See our original post, and watch the video of the magical flight here.  Enjoy.
