Disney’s “Paperman” Animated Short
This week was quite busy, especially for Disney Animation Studios who recently released “Paperman”, a short animated film. John Kars the director of this animation used groundbreaking techniques to seamlessly merge CG and hand-drawn animation techniques and his effort was not in vain. As you probably noticed this animation is black and white and has already earned an Oscar-nomination for the best animated short in 2013.
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.
I hope you will enjoy this short animation as I did, and to appreciate the work and the effort made by John and his crew to create such a beautiful animated short.
