[WATCH] Disney’s charming animated short PAPERMAN


Chances are that if you saw Disney’s excellent Wreck-It Ralph in cinemas, you were pleasantly surprised by the animated short that preceded it. Directed by John Kahrs, and employing a stunning black-and-white mix of computer-generated and hand-drawn animation, Paperman tells the story of a lonely young man in mid-century New York City whose life takes an unexpected turn after a chance meeting with a beautiful woman on his morning commute. The short is one of five nominated for Best Animated Short Film at next month’s Academy Awards, and while I can’t speak to the quality of the other entries, this charming and lovingly-crafted work has to be a frontrunner.
