The new Pixar film Inside Out (Dir. Peter Docter), like all Pixar films was preceded by the latest short film Lava. As I sat in the packed out cinema screen I remembered the Pixar tradition of having their little shorts before the main feature, which has been the case since the studio started making films. I have enjoyed many of the previous ones, Night and Day, The Blue Umbrella and La Luna to name a few.
Once again, Pixar have created a lovely short film, about two volcanoes looking for love, the story spanning years but shown in a seven minute clip. The whole film is a musical, sung by Kuana Torres Kahele and is uplifting and whimsical in the way that only Pixar can do it.
