its a 2D and 3D hybrid . but the finished result is a 2D animated movie. hard to explain.

here is the making of video.

they animate a simple 3D character. then a 2D drawing artist draws lines on top of the 3D model. but its not in 3D space. its in 2D space . the custom software anylizes the lines and helps the 2D artist to draw in 3D.

Paperman was screened at siggraph. rumors are that it could be one of the best disney short movies.
Paramount Animation Taps ‘Paperman’s’ John Kahrs to Direct ‘Shedd’ (EXCLUSIVE)
Dave McNary said:
Paramount Pictures’ fledgling animation division has tapped Oscar winner John Kahrs to direct “Shedd.”

Tripper Clancy is writing the script, which is based on an original idea from Paramount’s Film Group president Adam Goodman, who oversees the animation division. The studio is keeping the logline under wraps.

Kahrs received the Oscar last year for the Disney animated short “Paperman.”

Paramount revved up its internal toon production operation in 2012 as it prepped for the end of its distribution pact with DreamWorks Animation, which has since signed its output deal with Fox. The division’s first title is a sequel to Nickelodeon’s 2004 toon “SpongeBob SquarePants” with a release set for Feb. 3, 2015.

Kahrs’ credits as animator include “The Incredibles,” “Bolt,” “Wreck-It Ralph” and “Ratatouille.”

Clancy recently sold buddy-comedy pitch “Winter Break” to Bill Block’s QED International, and his road-trip comedy “Ambassadors” is set up at Fox with Danny Boon attached to direct.

Kahrs is repped by WME. Clancy is repped by UTA and Benderspink.
