Disney has released the poster and details on its upcoming animated short film “Paperman.” The short film will be the lead into this November’s 3D animated feature “Wreck-It Ralph.”  “Paperman” is considered to be an experimental process of marrying “computer-generated and hand-drawn animation,” and this is just in black-and-white.

Here’s what a spokesperson from Disney had to say:

Introducing a groundbreaking technique that seamlessly merges computer-generated and hand-drawn animation techniques, first-time director John Kahrs takes the art of animation in a bold new direction with “Paperman.”

Using a minimalist black-and-white style, the short follows the story of a lonely young man in mid-century New York City, whose destiny takes an unexpected turn after a chance meeting with a beautiful woman on his morning commute. 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. 

Created by a small, innovative team working at Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Paperman” pushes the animation medium in a new direction.

“Paperman” will likely hit the film festival circuit to gin up press, and put itself into the running for the Oscars next year.
