After Sundance, Connolly moved up to Emeryville to work at Pixar, where he's writing an untitled project for Teddy Newton (Day and Night). 'It's totally different, the way they do things up here. You're here everyday. You don't go away for three months and come up with a script. You're involved with a director and it's very collaborative.' The Pixar gang also told him 'not to dumb it down or treat animation like it's for kids.'
