We have something really lovely to share with you today – if you haven’t heard about this already! Disney’s charming short film up for an Oscar this year, Paperman, is a nostalgic return to the tradition of 2-D, hand-drawn animation that also embraces what modern 3-D animation technology has to offer…and it’s absolutely brilliant!

The short is a little urban fairy tale about a man who attempts to capture the attention of the woman of his dreams with paper airplanes he launches from his skyscraper office to hers. We won’t tell you anymore as you HAVE to watch it for yourself… but it was made with new in-house software called Meander that enables a hybrid approach to animation, where characters and backgrounds are drawn over an initial digital layer.

Grab a cuppa, sit back, and enjoy it HERE….
