Presto – the charm-caster

I happened to watch Pixar studio’s Presto accidentally as I was browsing my DVD collection. Presto is a short animation movie from the makers of classic animation movies like Wall E, Cars and Ratatoullie. Its about a magician and his pet rabbit which he pulls out of his hat to entertain the audience. One not-so-fine day, Presto forgets to feed the rabbit Alec and Alec ensures that he suffers for his mistake.

The movie lasts for no more that 3-4 minutes. But very racy paced and intellectually intriguing stuff gave me a satisfaction equal to watching a full length movie. What struck me most was the simplicity of the story, animation and characters and out-of-the-box thinking by the director.

  1. Pixar has a tradition of making short ones along with the major animation flicks.
    This one was along with Wall-E, I suppose. I watched Wall-E in big screen and found this being featured before the start of the movie.
