041: Teddy Newton (from the Pixar Talk Archive)

As Oscar Month comes to a close, we bring you one more interview with a nominated Pixarian.  Teddy Newton spoke with Pixar Talk's Greg Mariotti in June 2010 about his short film, Day and Night, which was later nominated for Best Animated Short. Greg transcribed the interview and published it on the Pixar Talk blog last year.  For the first time, we have a chance to hear that interview in its original audio format.
