On YouTube? Like... for free? Is Paperman actually Disney's?

Yay! It was lovely. If it's ever available on iTunes, I'll buy it! That's how it works with me. Why get something for free when you can buy it? :)

This is awesome. despite what some people say, I think the animation style is great. It has all of the character and style of hand-drawn animation, with the polish of CGI. I still prefer purely hand-drawn films, but I think it's an excellent experiment. Imagine a videogame created in this style?

Oh, and the story is good enough too.

There are several videogames done in a similar style (Jet set radio, Wind waker, Okami), but i do see what you mean. I certainly hope the style becomes the norm for animated movies.

I always love to catch the oscar nominated shorts. I must say I really do like this one.

I think the style goes deeper than just being flat, it's replicating some things specific to traditional animation really well making it really weird but in a awesome way at times.

Nothing to hate about this style or implementation at all, it's like a toon shader's much more advanced great grandkid. To compare it to the toon shader style that exists now is a borderline insult to the work involved in making this short look like it does.
