Welcome to Day 3 of Pixar Week!
Sometimes the most magical moments do not happen on stage, in front of a crowd...sometimes, they happen behind the scenes as the illusion is being delicately crafted for the audience.
For a fascinating look inside Pixar Studios, including what it takes to direct and design an animated feature, check out Pixar's behind-the-scenes page on their website.

Now, on to the show! Have you ever wondered what happens the moment before the curtain opens on a great magic show? Well, Presto will show you just that.
The humor (and lesson for our students) comes from a magician's rabbit, a fiesty assistant that desperately wants a carrot to settle its rumbling tummy. This short film can teach our students about patience and self-control, but also about recognizing and responding to other people's feelings.
There are some slightly inappropriate aspects of this film (slapstick humor, such as a ladder to the groin and electric shock), so use your best judgement. Enjoy!
