I think Disney released Paperman online. Does anyone have a link to it?

Anyway, in all seriousness, that was a beautiful short.

Great example of combining 2D and 3D animation, I'll go so far as to say that's the best combined 2D/3D animated film I've ever seen. It's like the perfect blend of old school Disney and CGI. And the girl was kinda hot.

Consequences can be good as well as bad.

I was talking about the main character never dying in Pixar movies for the most part.

I was cheering for Scar. Mostly because he was by far the most interesting and entertaining character in the film.

Edited: Oh, I see now from that last page that a few other posters already put up the link. Well, I'm not gonna take my link down in the hope that more people will watch the short.

Watched it for the first time myself last night, and probably six more times since then and this morning. Absolutely beautiful and amazing. I sincerely hope that Disney will make more films like this.

Having future films animated with the same techniques utilized in Paperman would be a great way to reconcile the traditionally hand-drawn animation style of older films with modern computer generated animation.

Just think. The fluidity of a 2D animated film with the dimension and scope of a CG animated film.

That was pretty amazing. I hope to see more future Disney movies like that. Anything to bring back that basic fluidity.

Exactly, most importantly it keeps the tradition of hand drawn animation alive. I can't think of a piece of animation that blends the two styles together so perfectly, I've been longing for something like this for years, the only examples we've really had is CG complimenting hand drawn animation, I don't call much if any 2D animation complimenting a GC animation. Paperman is almost an exact 50-50 blend of the two. I'm hoping this short films kicks things off.

Here's the process behind Paperman.

Quote:

If you went and saw the retro gaming-inspired flick Wreck-It Ralph at the cinemas, you’d have also seen the excellent short “Paperman” that plays before it. Walt Disney Animation Studios recently uploaded Paperman to YouTube, where it’s accrued six million views in three days. Paperman’s unique, loveable style is thanks to new tech the studio has developed that blends old with new.
The studio calls the technology “Meander” and as Paperman director John Kahrs explains, the idea behind it was to bring across the expressiveness and individuality imparted to characters by an artist’s hand and merge it with the power and flexibility of computer generated imagery.
He also mentions Disney’s legacy and talent with traditional 2D animation; being able to leverage that history and make it relevant in an age dominated by 3D was something he felt important.
How is this blending achieved exactly? An article on Entertainment Weekly provides more specifics:
First the characters and backgrounds were rendered digitally, and then hand-drawn art was layered over those shapes, giving the figures a kind of 3D quality unseen in old-school animation. “What you’re seeing is a very stylised CG layer [underneath], but the feel of the image is very flat and lives in between the two,” Kahrs says.
The Meander program, created by Disney software engineer Brian Whited, allows the 2D hand-drawn artwork to “stick” to the dimensional CG layer underneath. “A cynic would say it’s high-tech rotoscoping,” Kahrs says, referring to an old animation technique of tracing over live-action film stills. “Really it’s more than that. It’s meant to celebrate the line, and bring it back up to the front of the image again.”
But you certainly don’t need to know the details to enjoy Paperman. It’s easily the best six-and-a-half-minutes you’ll spend today.


So Meander is the term they've coined for this technique.

The more I read about Paperman or see, the more impressed I am. We may have finally seen a breakthrough that can bring 2D quality back to new generations who have disavowed it. One can hope.
