Paperman: Disney’s Oscar-Nominated Short, Now Online

Wednesday 01.30.2013 , Posted by

Disney Paperman 4

It’s always refreshing when big name companies do it the good old fashioned way… even if that’s just the way it looks. Such is the case with Disney’s recent Oscar-Nominated Short, Paperman. Just released on the internet for all to enjoy, the 6 minute romantic comedy has a simply charming plot which could get many people swept away with the joy of young love… and maybe even challenge some to leave their mind-numbing jobs for it. The mid-century New York based film would stand on its own with this fact alone, but the film also uses a “groundbreaking” new technique to seamlessly merge the accuracy of computer-generated animation with the old school charm of hand-drawn animation.

Los Angeles is perhaps most famous for two things: its prolific creation of movies, and its massive urban sprawl. The city is unique for having almost no geographic center, instead being spread between districts like Hollywood and the San Fernando Valley (which are city sized in their own right). Now Los Angeles’s A+D Architecture and Design Museum is asking the question “What if?” What if the area’s many proposed architectural projects from the past had been realized? Never Built explores ideas that were never to be, looking at futuristic projects ranging from ideas for massive public institutions, to cantilevered outdoor recreation spaces and extensive rail-based public transportation. It’s an exciting look at the future that could have been… one that is daring the City of Angels to dream big again. [Read more...]
