More about Paperman

The AnythingDiz blog offers the most detailed preview yet of Paperman, the short that's due to open with Wreck-It Ralph on November 2.

Paperman is a hybrid that fuses the dimension and depth of digital animation with the abstract warmth of traditional line-art. The result is a world seemingly sculpted out of sketches.

The technology used to create the short ... could be the first step in a long-overdue comeback for hand-drawn animation.

“Drawing can have a really powerful, visceral effect on the viewer. You can create anger and surprise or anguish with just a few lines of a pencil,” says director John Kahrs, an animator on The Incredibles and Tangled. “But it can’t just be the same thing it was. I think for 2-D to be revitalized, you have to figure out a way to make it new again.”
