As a part of their Oscar campaign for Best Animated Short Film, Paperman has been released for viewing on Disney Animation’s Youtube page.
Paperman was shown before Disney’s most recent full-length animated film, Wreck-It Ralph. Based in 1940s New York, the black-and-white animated short tells a story of love at first sight and the means it takes to not let it slip away. John Kahrs, who previously animated for Tangled and The Incredibles, directed the film, which garnered attention for blending traditional hand-drawn animation with computer-generated techniques.
The Academy Awards are set to air on ABC on Feb. 24 at 7 p.m. EST. Watch the video below.
