Paperman – Animated Short Film by Disney Pixar

A wonderful blend of Disney and Pixars storytelling skills with a traditional animation style makes Paperman a unique animation.

Like the Pixar shorts that they play before movies this is a technical masterpiece. It uses a rendering technique that turns the 3d objects into a 2d pencil drawn style. I’ve seen loads of these different renderers before and this is by far the best.

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.

Oh – and the actual story is really nice too :)
