Watch the Full Disney Animated Short Paperman

Before the Academy Awards on February 24th be sure to check out this, oscar-nominated, animated short by Disney animation Studios. This short was directed by first-time Director John Kahrs and played before Wreck-It Ralph. When I first saw this short I was really impressed and all I wanted to do was watch it again. So I went home and try to find it on the Internet. Sadly, all I could find was a hand recorded bad version of it. Now before the Academy Awards Disney has released the full short for your viewing pleasure. Read the full Disney YouTube channel description after the break.

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.
