Disney Showcases Oscar-nominated Short “Paperman” Online

by on January 31, 2013

Walt Disney Animation Studios has uploaded director John Kahrs’ animated short Paperman onto Youtube. The short is noted for utilizing a new technology called “Meander” that Disney created in-house, which renders the characters and backgrounds digitally and layers hand-drawn art over those shapes to create 2D animation with a unique appearance of depth. Paperman was screened as the lead-in to Disney’s animated feature film Wreck-It Ralph and recently became one of five animated shorts nominated for an Oscar at the 85th Academy Awards.
