Convinced the girl of his dreams is gone forever, he gets a second chance when he spots her in a skyscraper window across the avenue from his office. With only his heart, imagination and a stack of papers to get her attention, his efforts are no match for what the fates have in store for him.”
More on the short film’s presentation:
Using a combination of hand-drawn and CG techniques…The tale unfolds in mid-century Manhattan, but it’s not just the setting that gives Paperman a retro feel. Though the short utilizes modern computer technology, the whole idea was to turn away from the glossy, super-polished look of many recent films.
