“Drawings everywhere”

drawings from Paperman

“Paperman” director John Kahrs talks about the importance of DRAWING in the CG age.



I’m excited about this film and hats off to John Kahrs and everyone else at Disney who is pushing CG animation in a new direction (combining CG with a hand-drawn look) but I guess what I’m still sort of scratching my head about is : if Disney really wants to retain the look and appeal of hand-drawn animation , then why not just DO Hand-Drawn Animation ? Am I missing something ? Seems to me what has hurt the advancement of hand-drawn animation lately is not the technique , but the the subject matter .
