Disney’s Paperman to Screen with Wreck-it-Ralph
Disney has recently announced that the November 2 premiere of their upcoming videogame-centric CG film Wreck-it-Ralph will also include the premiere of the studio’s acclaimed new short, titled Paperman. The short will be directed by John Kahrs and produced by Kristina Reed, and will feature a groundbreaking style that mixes the best of CG and hand drawn animation.
Paperman features a minimalist monochrome style, and will follow the story of a lonely young man in mid century New York City, whose fate takes an unexpected turn after a chance meeting with a beautiful woman during 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 fate has in store for him.
