Paperman!

I’ve got a bit of a thing for animated shorts at the moment and so I find myself pretty lucky that Disney‘s Paperman has wondered into my domain.

Like Minkyu Lee‘s excellent Adam & Dog short, Paperman has also been nominated for best animated short film at this year’s 85th Academy Awards.

Telling a 1940’s love story in black and white with paper as a central theme, all the while blending traditional animation and computer graphics techniques, Paperman is nothing short of a wistful and charmingly brilliant revelation.

In fact, I dare say that there is more heart-felt emotion and characterisation on display here than in the majority of Dreamworks recent animated output.

Though I guess that’s not exactly a mean-feat or anything though is it?

Anyway, because I’m nice and not a toweringly evil bastard, I’ve linked the video for you to fawn over below.

Don’t forget to crank that sucker up…
