PrestoThe Slash Films Blog has releasted a still shot from the directorial debut of Pixar’s Annie Award-winning supervising animator Doug Sweetland which is set to premiere in front of the production company's next feature film  "WALL-E." Apple Computer founder Steve Jobs' Academy Award winning Pixar Animation Studios has long been recognized for short film presentations which are eagerly anticipated warm-ups for such animated features as Toy Story, A Bug's Life, Toy Story 2, Monsters, Inc.  Finding Nemo, The Incredibles and Cars, This five minute short film follows  Presto DiGiotagione, a turn-of-the-century magician, who is famous for an astounding hat trick. Presto’s apprentice rabbit, Alec, however, is dissatisfied as he shares none of Presto’s wild success. While Presto is out eating lavish dinner, Alec is left behind, locked in a birdcage with a carrot torturously out of reach. Sweetland also provides the voices of both Presto and Alec.
