Can't wait for this to come out!

I just pre-ordered this box set of flipbooks by Disney's Nine Old Men, and I can't wait to get them! Screen Shot 2012 10 10 at 9 48 10 AM Shipping date has been pushed back to January of 2013, so not in time for Christmas, unfortunately. These books were put together by Pixar's very own director/animator/Disneyphile Pete Docter, so you know it's legit!

The Making of Paperman

Paperman is a new short film from Disney that will premiere in front of Wreck It Ralph this November. It was directed by former Pixar animator John Kahrs, and I had the pleasure of previewing it a few months ago. The Disney artists employed some new technology to blend hand-drawn animation with CG animation, and the result is quite beautiful to behold. You can see a technical breakdown of the process here, and there's more Making Of… info here.
