Who wouldn’t want to meet the talent behind Toy Story 3? Here’s your chance!

Consider it the Blu-ray pre-release tour. Maybe I’m exaggerating, but it’s like having the film’s special features live — a month before release:

Pixar Story Development

Toy Story 3 screenwriter, Michael Arndt, is set to make an appearance at the Austin Film Festival to conduct two insightful talks.

Pixar Story Development Process: Mary Coleman and Emily Zuluaf (Dev. Execs) join Arndt to discuss the studio’s steps towards fostering original ideas. These include research trips and feedback from the Brain Trust.

How 4 Years of Creative Agony Became 93 Minutes of Movie Fun: Also led by Arndt, this talk is accompanied by reels from various stages of Toy Story 3 production to exemplify missteps and how they were rectified by the time the film was completed.

For more information, including tickets and a full list events, please check out the official website of the Austin Film Festival.
