Released yesterday, this new short film from Disney has already created mass excitement. Entitled 'Paperman,' the short animation is to be shown in cinemas just before Wreck-It Ralph. Having already bagged an Oscar nomination, Disney has done it again with this incredibly touching six-minute offering.
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.
Not only is this a heart-warming tale to warm even the coldest of hearts, Disney have also introduced a groundbreaking animation technique. Seamlessly merging hand-drawn and computer-generated animation, this could be an exciting new direction for the industry.
