|Day & Night|
|83rd Academy Awards|
Day & Night is a Pixar animated short film, directed by Teddy Newton and produced by Kevin Reher. It has been packaged to be shown in theaters before Toy Story 3, and has been released to purchase on iTunes in the United States.
Unlike most other Pixar shorts, the animation style combines 2D and 3D elements, and Up production designer Don Shank says it is "unlike anything Pixar has produced before".
When Day, a sunny fellow, encounters Night, a stranger of distinctly darker moods, sparks fly! Day and Night are frightened and suspicious of each other at first, and quickly get off on the wrong foot. But as they discover each other's unique qualities--and come to realize that each of them offers a different window onto the same world-the friendship helps both to gain a new perspective.
