Walt Disney Animation Studios has unveiled the entire "Paperman" short film, which is nominated for the Best Short Film (Animated) Oscar. It's directed by John Kahrs and Kristina Reed. Watch it below.
The story follows a lonely young man in mid-century New York City, whose destiny takes an unexpected turn after a chance meeting with a beautiful woman on 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.
Coolest thing I've seen on this site for a very long time.

Always wondered what Adrien Brody would look like as an animated black and white character. This short reminds me of Deniro's great scene in Brazil - the original Paperman engulfed in newspapers and then completely blown away in the wind.
