This week, "Monsters University" graduates to home video, and along with it comes the delightful animated short that accompanied it theatrically, "The Blue Umbrella." We were amongst the first to see the photo-real romance (between two umbrellas, of course) back in January when we broke the news that musical genius Jon Brion would be providing the short's delicate, bouncy score. And now we're back, offering exclusive art from the project as well as test footage showing how real-life umbrellas inspired this animated treat.

While we first mentioned back in the summer of 2012 that producer and composer Jon Brion would be scoring what was then "the untitled umbrella short" for Pixar (to play ahead of this summer's "Monsters University"), it was never confirmed by the studio… until now. The short, now entitled "The Blue Umbrella" and set to have its worldwide premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival next month, is indeed scored by Brion. What's more, we got to talk to first-time director Saschka Unseld about the short and about working with the estimable talent that is Jon Brion.
