Short Film: Paperman

Utilising a ground-breaking new technique that seamlessly merges CGI and hand-drawn animation, Disney prove they’ve still got it with the wonderful Paperman. From first-time director John Kahrs, the adorable short tells the spellbinding and heart-melting tale of a man and a woman who bump into each other on the station platform. Despite leaving on different trains, they have one more chance opportunity to meet, and with a little help from some magical papers, the man must fight through the city jungle to make that happen. If you missed Paperman before Wreck-It Ralph, now’s your chance to catch a future classic, while hopefully there’s more due from Kahrs.
