Watch “Paperman” Walt Disney’s Brilliant Oscar-Nominated Animated Short Film

paperman-disneyEven at 47 years old I still find “magic” with what Disney puts out there.  (Which is part of the reason that I am excited so see the new Star Wars films.  But there are WAY too many reasons for that so I will stay on topic.)  Such is the case with their latest animated short film titled “Paperman“.  Paperman is an oscar-moninated short film from first time director, John Kahrs.  Given this first outing I would say that John is going to be a very busy guy going forward.  Read the synopsis below and then watch the full feature.  Let us know what you think in the comments section below.

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.

Created by a small, innovative team working at Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Paperman” pushes the animation medium in an exciting new direction.
