The 6 and a half minute animation 'Paperman', which was created using new software called Meander, has been released online.

Disney's animated short Paperman, which accompanied Wreck-It Ralph in cinemas, has been released online. The 6 and a half minute film was created by first-time director John Kahrs and a small team at Disney, and has been nominated for Best Animated Short Film at this year's Academy Awards.

The black-and-white short tells the story of a lonely young man in mid-century NYC who briefly meets a beautiful woman on his morning commute. After thinking the girl of his dreams is gone forever, he glimpses her in the skyscraper across from his office and uses his imagination and a stack of papers to get her attention.
