Disney Short Film: *Paperman*


Disney Short Film: *Paperman*

Yesterday, Disney published a wonderful short film called Paperman. It just makes you smile, especially if you are a person like me who also love paper airplanes.

The film itself is actually an technological animation showcase, mixing hand-drawn media in a new fluid way, and I must say it’s a wonderful technique. Please do more of this Disney!

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.

BTW: The movie is not entirely original. It very clearly builds on the theme from *Signs,* which is also worth a look:
