Paperman_still_1

Paperman, the beautiful and whimsical short screened before Wreck-It Ralph has been placed on YouTube by the Walt Disney Company.  It’s an absolutely joyous 6 and a half minutes, and if you haven’t seen it, you should. Now. (In HD, if your computer supports it.)

Serving as a showcase of Disney’s new, revolutionary animation technique perfectly blending 3D rendering with a 2D style, the short is nominated for Best Animated Short at the 85th Annual Academy Awards this March.

If you dig it, you’ll probably also enjoy Adam WarRock‘s song about the short, which can be listened to and downloaded here.
