Disney's Oscar-Nominated Animated Short 'Paperman' Now Available to View Online

Disney's epically charming short animated film "Paperman," nominated for an Oscar this year, is now available to view in full online. The beautiful retro film, which is dialogue-free and filmed almost entirely in black and white, uses an innovative combination of hand-drawn animation and CGI.

Explains Wired, "'Paperman'‘s seemingly seamless way of blending the personality of hand-drawn animation with CGI in the physical space of the story is the result of new in-house software called Meander, a vector-based drawing program that allows for manipulation of the line after the fact — something that [director John] Kahrs described as 'just like painting on the surface of the CG.'"
