Watch Now: Disney’s Academy Award Nominated Short ‘Paperman’
  |  @   |  

If anything John KahrsPaperman short, which was featured in front of Wreck-It Ralph, was nothing short of magical. The black-and-white short seamlessly integrated computer animation with hand-drawn animation and told a romantic story of man who will go to great lengths to share his feelings with a person he just met on a train. That combined with a great score, and you have yourself one of the best-animated shorts ever.

This is not an exaggeration either; Paperman was quickly seen as one of the possible winners for an Academy Award for Best Animated Sort.

So if you missed the film, then Disney is giving you another opportunity to see the short. The studio has released the 6-minute film online for you to see. Check it out here below.

The process of the animation may sound sophisticated at first, with its glossy feel and blending of two animation mediums, and that was Kahrs’ intention. In an interview with EW last year, Kahrs said, “I think for 2-D to be revitalized, you have to figure out a way to make it new again.”

The Paperman short will be included as a special feature on the Wreck-It Ralph DVD/Blu-ray when it hits store shelves on March 5th.

  1. Very well done, beautiful little film. Parts of it kind of reminded me of the floating feather from Forrest Gump.
