Description: We’re honored to have Teddy Newton, one of the most revered new members of Pixar’s crackerjack team, for a Q&A and a special screening of Day & Night, Teddy’s remarkable short that preceded Toy Story 3! When Day, a sunny fellow, encounters Night, a stranger of distinctly darker moods, sparks fly; frightened and suspicious at first, they soon discover each other’s unique qualities, forging a friendship and gaining new perspectives. With its astonishing inventiveness, the short proved equally as memorable as the feature it accompanied, and with this program we delve into the details of its creator’s process. Since his first character design work on The Incredibles, Newton has contributed his skills to many of Disney•Pixar’s award-winning features and shorts, including Ratatouille and Presto, and is frequently cast as a voice in their films. In addition to discussing his inspiration for Day & Night, what it took to get a greenlight from the studio, and the technical challenges posed by the production process, Newton will present a special presentation documenting the film’s creation!
