I went to a screening of “Wreck-It Ralph” Tuesday night. I really enjoyed it, but I think I’m the right age to get all of the video game references, not to mention I might be in the tank for Disney.
What I have to mention is the short that played before it. “Paperman” is a little story about love, fate, and paper, and it just so happens that the animation is stunning. I couldn’t believe how much I enjoyed the style of it, and I would kill to do a comic (or anything) in a similar vein. Check out these stills and tell me you don’t want to see more right now.
Love the depth in these shots — really adds to the mood and pulls you in.
I really loved Paperman and would encourage anyone ot go see Wreck It Ralph just to see this short and how great it is. In a world of CG animation as the norm, a return to traditional hand drawn animation allowed this to stand out. Not to mention its style of Film Noir and silent film. Almost reminiscent of “The Artist” but charming in it’s own unique way.
