Fall in Love with Disney Animations Paperman Again
Introducing a groundbreaking technique that seamlessly merges computer-generated and hand-drawn animation techniques, first-time director John Kahrs takes the art of animation in a bold new direction with the Oscar®-nominated short, “Paperman.” Using a minimalist black-and-white style, the short follows the story of a lonely young man in mid-century New York City, whose destiny takes an unexpected turn after a chance meeting with a beautiful woman on his morning commute. Convinced the girl of his dreams is gone forever, he gets a second chance when he spots her in a skyscraper window across the avenue from his office. With only his heart, imagination and a stack of papers to get her attention, his efforts are no match for what the fates have in store for him. Created by a small, innovative team working at Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Paperman” pushes the animation medium in an exciting new direction.
This is so cool. never seen it before now tho
Awesome video. LOVE this animation style! i hope they do more of this
Very neat- I kind of like that the hand drawn aspect isnt completly going away.
Well phooey. I went to watch the video and all I get is snow and a message that says “THIS VIDEO IS PRIVATE” so I cannot see it.
Seems awesome indeed.
But the link is not working here.
I looked for the trailer in youtube. Great.
Might be your browser; it’s working for me and most readers…?
You’re right, Stacey.
It worked with another browser.
Thank you for answering! 🙂
We recently saw this animated short and found it charming. Interesting how it was made!
I was so happy that this won the Oscar last night! Such a heartwarming short film!
After reading that it might be the browser I went to Foxfire and Chrome (I use IE9)and I got that the video was private, but I did go to youtube and viewed it there. Pretty cool.
Glad you were able to view it eventually; it received an Oscar the other night 🙂
This is cool. I’ve never heard of it before now.
Sounds interesting; however, I was unable to view the video and I attempted to view it on another brower as well and still was not successful. Oh well.
