We love the Disney Feature Animation Shorts that show before any Disney animated film. Don’t you? They usually consist of no dialogue, simple characters, and a simple yet emotion-filled storyline.
With Disney’s newest feature animated film only right around the corner, you can expect another great animated short to accompany it!
“Paperman” will precede ”Wreck-It-Ralph” on November 2, 2012. Disney released the above screen from the black-and-white short. The storyline looks just as interesting, too folks! Read it below:
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.
We can’t wait to review both “Paperman” and “Wreck-It-Ralph” before it hits theaters. Are you excited for both?
