Disney just posted its Oscar-nominated animated short Paperman online. The film, which played ahead of Wreck-It Ralph in theaters, is a unique blend of hand-drawn and digital animation. It’s also just a plain old eyepopping delight, with surprises I wouldn’t dare spoil for you, except to say you really need to take 6 and a half minutes to watch it now. It’s the first directorial outing for John Kahrs, who previously worked as an animator on Bolt, Ratatouille, The Incredibles, and Toy Story 2. Convinced? Now just watch it already:
