How can a single great note transform a short film? This talk traces two Pixar Animation Studios shorts, “Presto” and “Partly Cloudy,” from first pitch to final film. We will watch clips from the earliest reels of each film, hear the story notes that Pixar's Brain Trust gave the director, then see how those notes catapulted the story to a new level in the final film. Development Executive, Mary Coleman will share insights and anecdotes about the often rocky road to finding the big story in a four-minute film.
