Screening - Disney's PAPERMAN Short w/ Q&A (London)

London VES Presents

Followed by a presentation and Q&A with the filmmakers.

Join John Kahrs, Director, Patrick Osborne, Animation Supervisor and Jeffrey Turley, Art Director for this special VES London presentation.
Introducing a groundbreaking technique that seamlessly merges computer-generated and hand-drawn animation techniques, first-time director John Kahrs takes the art of animation in a bold new direction with PAPERMAN. Using a minimalist black-and-white style, the short follows the story of 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 the fates have in store for him. Created by a small, innovative team working at Walt Disney Animation Studios, PAPERMAN pushes the animation medium in an exciting new direction.


Invitations are for members of the visual effects community plus one guest. There will be no recording devices or photography allowed during the screening or presentation.
