Disney’s Paperman Teaser Poster
'Paperman' is the short that will precede 'Wreck-It Ralph' upon its release later this year. 'Paperman' has been generating a lot of interest for its distinctive blend of CG and hand drawn animation. It also marks the directorial debut of John Kahrs (Disney animator on 'Toy Story 2', 'Tangled', 'Monsters Inc', 'Bolt' and 'The Incredibles.') ‘Paperman’ will debut at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival in June.
"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."
