some stories are best told without any words

This silent black and white film tells more of a story in six minutes than many two hour movies manage. Paperman was created by Disney's John Kahrs (The Incredibles) who was inspired by the time he spent in NY, commuting to Grand Central. To create soft black and white animation (the only color is lipstick) Kahrs and his team used new software called Meander which merged hand drawings with computer-generation to create the look of Disney animations of yore. It's up for an Oscar and made its debut on youtube Tuesday where it's already gotten 3 million votes.
