This is actually an animated short that was featured before the movie Wreck-It Ralph rather than a full length movie.  Disney Animation just put it up on their YouTube account, so I thought I share it with you guys.  Here's the whole thing:

Small | Large


It's up for nomination for Best Animated Short and thought it would be a good to show.  Plus, it's what I hope wins that award.   TeddyR

It's already won an Annie Award for Best Animated Subject. The Annie being animation's equivalent of the Oscar. Which increased the odds that it will win the Oscar for Animated Subject.But more than that . . .

Having heard a Disney animator speak, confirming what I already knew, how animated short subjects are used as the testing grounds for full length animated features, if "Paperman" is not itself expanded into a full length animated feature, we are then likely to see its style of animation used in a later full length animated feature.

Why did this cost millions of dollars? An independent studio could do this well-worn story for less than half of what Disney spent on this. Not that the company doesn't have a history of wasting money, of course.

Why do you care? It was their money.

Maybe a small independent could NOT have done it cheaper. Is it possible it involved some innovation YOU don't know about?

I have to admit I was pretty surprised at how many people were in the credits.  That being said, it probably meant they were able to crank it out in a fraction of the time a 'lone ranger' would have been able to, so I assume speed was a factor.  And there's that age old saying that if you want something done quality quickly it won't come cheap.

The quality shows though: it's an excellent short film.

"Paperman"
What it is not.

Collage -- ccomputer generated -- cut-out --direct -- mixed media -- object -- pin -- pixilation -- puppets -- silhouette -- still painting -- stills -- traditional

I bet no one knew that there were that many types and styles of animation.

What it is.

It is a whole new type and style of animation blending the best of old traditional animation and new computer generated animation. Which is why it cost so much. And which is why only Disney/Pixar could do it. As they are the only ones with the talent and money to do it. And while most animation is now done in color, it is one of the few that goes back to the old days of doing it in black-and-white.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
