In stock



From the publisher:

Judi Barrett and Ron Barrett's beloved children's story comes to life in Sony Animation's feature: Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. The film follows the adventures of Flint Lockwood, a young and relentless inventor who creates a machine that adds a delicious twist to his town's weather patterns. Overnight Flint's invention changes the sleepy town of Swallow Falls to a global tourist destination, eclipsing the local sardine industry and turning the weather forecasts into up-to-the-minute menus. Everything seems to be booming, but Flint's invention quickly turns delicious to dangerous as choppy weather begins to have some interesting and catastrophic effects.

Chock full of visual developmental art, digital renders and revealing behind-the-scenes discussions of how this visual feast came to be. Every page of The Art and Making of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs provides an inside look at the making of this knockout film, featuring more than 300 pieces of artwork as well as stories and insights from the filmmakers who crafted this stylistic film. Special attention is given to design, story development, visual progression and the incredible CG effects.
