We stumbled across something really special on the interwebs recently and wanted to share it with you this Valentine’s Day. It’s a beautifully animated short love story brought to us by Disney. It’s called Paperman 😉
Paperman – Full Animated Short Film
Paperman introduces a new, groundbreaking animation technique whereby hand-drawn images are seamlessly merged with computer-generated ones. This video was created by a small team at Walt Disney Animation Studios and directed by first-time director, John Kahrs. It has (of course) been nominated for an Oscar.
Here’s a little bit about Paperman off YouTube:
“Using a minimalist black-and-white style, this animated love story 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.”
Thank you Disney for bringing this enchanting animation to the world…
PS: I highly recommend watching this on YouTube, in HD, in full-screen.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
