About the Movie
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 “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.
There so much heart behind the art here. Paperman is more endearlingly warm and witty in its six and a half minutes than ninety nine percent of films made in 2012. I eagerly await more work from John Kahrs and company. There's real magic here.
One of the Best Disney Shorts Ever
Absolutely breathtaking animation, incredible music, and a great story that will leave you feeling happy and optimistic. :) Love it.
Yes, I bought it….yes indeed! :)
Sometimes the best videos are not the longest. Just think of the opening scene in UP!, I don't think a word was spoken - but how powerful. The same with this video, its not just boy meets girl, but what is important to you and what will you do to chase your dream - and who supports you in your pursuit.
Charming and lovely video, will watch it again and again in HD. :)
