Beautiful First Stills From Disney's Paperman

Here are the first three, cinematic stills from Walt Disney Animation Studios' frenzy-inducing short Paperman. Disney released them in hi-res this morning. I wish we'd get something like this every Saturday!

Helmed by animator John Kahrs in his directorial debut, Paperman was created in black-and-white using "a groundbreaking technique that seamlessly merges computer-generated and hand-drawn animation".

You can see Paperman in theatres with Wreck-It Ralph on November 2. In the meantime, here's some equally attractive concept art from the production.

So, given these wonderful shots do you think this'll be a waterline for animation? I feel it could easily be the bridge between traditional and CG animation I've been itching for for so long.

I'm not all that interested in Wreck-it-Ralph, but I'll probably go see it just for Paperman. Beautiful imagery! Can't wait!

These looks sooo incredible! I can't help wishing this was feature length!

I Thought It Was About A NEWSPAPER "Paperman". Not A Buissnessman!

I really really hope that disney follows this style for future animated features

This looks great. Animation is cool and Wreck-it Ralph? what more could a gaming/Disney nerd want!?

Wow, wow, wow! The pencil lines and textures are simply beautiful to observe. Very excited to see how this looks in motion. Not strictly B&W — look closely at the girl's mouth and you'll see a hint of red. Please let's have this style of animation in our futures, not just the hyper-realistic 3D that is currently the trend.

Second image is my current wallpaper. I can't wait to see this in motion.

"Paperman" is fantastic. I could watch it a dozen times in a row. Perfect.
