Technology brings drawing back to computer animation

The animated short film Paperman is already winning prizes and is on the nomination list for Best Animated Short Film at the Oscars this year. What’s so special about this 2012 production? The film is a combinations of traditional hand-drawn animation with computer animation.

I think this is an example of how technology can be used to combine our talents, like drawing, with computer animation. Mixing 2D drawings with 3D modeled environments. Another example of technology and it’s endless possibilities.

Check out what director John Kahrs inspired to make this film:


Paperman is a black-and-white animation by Walt Disney Animation Studios.
