      Youtube is the only way at the moment because Paperman is still a very new film and all the rights and ownership is with Disney. Disney wouldn't want anyone to post it online so people would watch it for free, thats not how they wanna make money at this early stage.

      I'm projecting Disney, to release Paperman on Itunes in three to four months time in 2013

    WHAT SHORT FILM IS THIS?
    I was going to see Wreck It Ralph, and right before the movie came on there was about a 5 minute short film that was so cute, but I dont know what it was.
    It was about a boy and a girl that see eachother at a train stop (all animated) and then he sees her again and throws paper planes at her window but keeps missing. Eventually all the paper planes drag the boy and girl together at the same train stop.

    I think it was a pixar film

  9. QUESTION:
    Watch Disney's Paperman short?
    Does anyone know where I can watch the Paperman short film that played before Wreck-It Ralph online? I can't find it anywhere and I missed it in theaters :c

    • ANSWER:
      It's a shame you missed it. Loved that short film. I didn't even care if the movie itself turned out bad. Seeing Paperman was worth it already. There's one video up on youtube but the people recorded from their camera so the video isn't that great. I recommend you watch the legit version for the full experience. Here's the link to it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2NjrRYRAIs

  11. QUESTION:
    what is this disney short film?
    Its about a man who likes this girl he is a buisness man and he meets this girl and he has his work papers with him. One of these papers flies into the girls face leaving a lipstick stain in a lip shape
    on his document. He immediatley likes her but before he can say anything she leaves on the train.
    The next day at work he is pretty depressed when he sees the girl he saw in the other window
    he begins throwing paper aeroplanes at the building window with love notes stapled to them trying to catch the girls attention. When he is out of paper and work day is over he walks presumably home with a glum look on his face when he sees all the missed paper aeroplanes he used to ge the girls attention. These aeroplanes made of paper surround him dragging him somewhere. Earlier on he threw his only memory of the girl - an aeroplane made of the document she had accidently smudged with lipstick - the girl begins to follow the levitating aeroplane and the man is being led by the planes.
    at the end they realise that they like eachother and it was the planes that led one to the other
    .
    What is this short film called. I saw it at the cinema before the start of wreck it ralph.

    • ANSWER:
      It's the Oscar nominated Paperman.

  12. QUESTION:
    Who will win the Academy Award 4 Short Film (Animated)?
    The nominees are...

    "Adam & Dog" Minkyu Lee
    "Fresh Guacamole" PES
    "Head Over Heels" Timothy Reckart & Fodhla Cronin O'Reilly
    "Maggie Simpson in 'The Longest Daycare'" David Silverman
    "Paperman" John Kahrs

    Now 4tunately I got 2 c these cartoon shorts from start 2 Finnish on YouTube! Well, 3 of 'em; there were trailers for "The Longest Daycare" & "Paperman." But perhaps yall saw 'em...if you watched "Ice Age: Continental Drift" or "Wreck-It Ralph." & their4 it can't b 2 hard 2 watch the other 3 cartoons. In fact, "Fresh Guacamole" was only under 4 mins long & thus got over seven million hits. In other words, this Oscar-nominated cartoon was only as long as any video of some doofus rapping about the latest trends. (I guess rapping's EZr than rockin'. Is it inconvenient 2 get the bros in the garage & rock out Velvet Revolver style 2 a song about wooing a Kardashian?) But back 2 the animated shorts; the filmmakers totally get their audiences so I'm incredibly pleased they showed the whole movies on YouTube. & "Adam & Dog" & "Head Over Heels" just premiered on YouTube yesterday! Whatcha w8n' 4? OK, thyme 2 review: "Adam & Dog" was a very sweet story taking the legendary couple from Genesis (& I don't mean the Phil Collins band) & put a dog in it. So this should tug @ the heartstrings for fans of Charlie Brown & Snoopy or "Red & Rover," (which sucks, IMHO, as it c8rs 2 the elderly Baby Boomers). Sorry! No more rants & numerals from now on. Ahem. "Adam & Dog" had beautiful graphics. & of course in typical indie, film-festival fashion, no dialogue was the best dialogue. (There ain't dialogue in any of these cartoons, although I can't see that Simpson cartoon so you guys may wanna inform me if Marge says so much as "Bye!" to Maggie.) "Fresh Guacamole" also has the arty look of using sports equipment & board game pieces. Since this cartoon doesn't tell a story, it's more like a art exhibit. This is the winner. & "Head Over Heels," like "Adam & Dog," also uses the minimum of two protagonists & one "upside-down" quirk to tell the speechless story. I wish I could see that Simpsons short but I'm skeptical if it wins. Besides, me & my sibs haven't regularly watched "The Simpsons" since the 90s; we have little knowledge of any 00s/10s Simpsons. & from the "Paperman" trailer, I consider the story incredibly charming. It's perhaps as good a love story that involved paper as Pam & Jim Halpert.

    So which cartoon do you like? Which cartoon tells the best story? Did u c "Fresh Guacamole" on YouTube like the other 7 million? Again, "Head Over Heels" & "Adam & Dog" have just premiered on YouTube so I strongly suggest you c these wonderful films. & the 85th Oscars take place February 24 on ABC.

  15. QUESTION:
    when does paperman disney shot come out?

    • ANSWER:
      It already aired in theaters before Wreck it Ralph, as a mini-movie before the feature film. It may be released as a bonus feature on the DVD or it may come out in an anthology DVD of short films (Pixar does that occasionally), but there hasn't been any information on it.

  16. QUESTION:

    • ANSWER:
      Definitely one of Disney's short films. 😀
      My personal favorite has to be 'Paperman.' c:

      Oh, my bad, the one I posted earlier was a preview, I think...

      New link. ^^

      Hope you don't mind that it's double screen... that version was supposed to be 3D... xAx

  17. QUESTION:
    Who likes the animation in Disney's "Paperman" short?
    BONUS QUESTION" Would you like to see it in a feature film?

    It's basically just CG with hand-drawn art "painted" over it.. I guess. A whole new form of animation (for those who don't know). I think it's really cool.

    • ANSWER:
      I loved it! It was so incredibly cute. It surprised me how good it was despite not having any dialogue :)
      I agree about the animation; it /was/ cool. It really intrigued me because of how different, how unique it was.

  18. QUESTION:
    Why do people prefer Tangled over The Princess and the Frog?
    The Princess (it's a lot shorter writing that that) came out in 2009 when I was 10 years old. When I watched it, I was blown away by it. The next day I went back to my computer to watch it again, and for the next few weeks I watched it again and again. But for Tangled I only watched it once, and that was in the movie theater. That doesn't necessarily mean I hated it or even disliked it, I was just more in love with The Princess than Tangled.

    A problem I have with Tangled is the music. Now, yeah, I guess it's catchy, but do you really think pop/guitar music works it that setting? For The Princess it works because the music is jazz and set in New Orleans.

    Second, the advertisement for The Princess was terrible. Tangled is a movie aimed MAINLY for girls -- admit it. After all, it *is* a princess movie. I guess it's just that there's more action/adventure/comedy in that movie is why it brought in some guys. Now let's talk about the title. I assume that it was originally going to be called "Rapunzel," however, after learning from The Princess' mistake of not changing the name, Disney changed it to "Tangled," thus making the name less "girly" and more for "the whole family," which is why it drew in a bigger crowd, which brought in more money for Disney.

    Last but not least is the animation. I find it sad that I (who was born in 1999, the turn of the century) prefer 2D animation over 3D animation, while most kids my age and younger prefer it the other way around. That doesn't mean I hate 3D animation, I actually love 3D movies (like Finding Nemo, Monsters Inc., etc.). But I guess why I'm starting to get more cold towards 3D is that every movie from Disney is now 3D (with the exception of Wreck-It Ralph -- I love that movie).

    Now as a final note, I'm not saying that The Princess is the most perfect 2D movie ever. I'm just saying that people threw The Princess movie to the side after Tangled came out, and that ticks me off. The Princess deserves a lot more attention than it has now. If Disney started making its movies with the animation from "Paperman," I would be A LOT more happier. Also...DO NOT answer with '"Because Tangled is a better movie"! Give me reasons why it is.

    • ANSWER:
      Well, I am completely with you on 2D over 3D.

      Here are the problems I think affected the Princess and the Frog, apart from the ones you mentioned.

      I think they were a little over-conscious of the whole "We're making a traditional Disney princess movie" thing, and filled it with a lot of characters that felt sort of like rehash of previous Disney characters. While it did give the movie a traditional feel, it also harmed the movie's individuality.

      Secondly, Tangled was, as far as I remember, MUCH funnier. (By the way, I'm sure that part of the reason for the name change is that when all the cheap knock-offs hit the video store shelves, they would at least not be able to confuse the shoppers by having the exact same title as Disney's movie, as happened with Beauty and the Beast. Disney could officially TRADEMARK 'Tangled,' but not 'Rapunzel.'

      The race issue--while I do not agree that we weren't ready for a black princess, race did make a difference. I work in a library in a predominantly white and Native American area, and the sad truth is that films or books about black people simply do not get watched as often, except for a few big blockbusters.

      This MIGHT have been offset by a lot of black people wanting to see the film, but the movie was heralded by tons of controversy, with huge protests and accusations of its being offensive and stereotypical causing furious rants all over the net. The internet rumor (or maybe even the truth in the early stages, I certainly have no way of knowing) was that Tiana was going to be a lazy housemaid who dreamed of being a princess so she wouldn't have to work. People also complained that the Prince looked too white. And probably a bunch of other complaints I no longer remember.

      After all the flack they caught, I'm sure Disney was content to let P&F slip quietly into the video market without much fuss or marketing. They always treat their less-popular or contraversial movies like poor relations that live on the back porch.

      EDIT: One other factor: since both movies are aimed at girls, one has to factor in the fact that the prince in Tangled was kind of sexy and the prince in P&F was more of a dork...
