Paperman: The Future of Animation

I've been waiting a long time for this to go up online. A beautiful new direction for film which breathes an astoundingly fresh yet restrained lease of life into the concept of traditional animation. In creating Paperman, a small team at Disney led by John Kahrs have not only taken a wonderfully sophisticated step forward with animation techniques, they've done it with a story of such class and grace, that you you just pray they'll be given the budget to produce a feature.

If I were to make my Stranski movie tomorrow, these are the people I'd want to work with.

Watch, be astounded, and then wish them luck for the Oscars!
