It’s 2045, and a lone robot orbits Earth in a spaceship, left there by his human companions. He longs for his home on Earth, but knows he’ll never see it again. Tragic, huh? This is the story of Robbie, a sentient Catholic robot, and the subject of the short film Robbie from director Neil Harvey.
Images from the new digital short “Paperman”, scheduled to be released November 2nd before Wreck-It-Ralph.
“Paperman” is directed by John Kahrs, an animator on The Incredibles and Tangled, and will follow a young office worker as he attempts to garner the attention of a beautiful woman by flying paper air planes across a bustling Manhattan to her office building.

This is an incredible music video/short film directed by DANIELS. It’s the most visually and emotionally arresting thing I’ve seen in a long time (and yes, I watched the Baja Fresh episode of Undercover Boss).
This is the result of the efforts of three students from the National Taiwan University of the Arts. It is a beautiful animation about a young girl and her dog, and the imagination at her beck and call. It inspires nothing short of awe and jealousy from me.
Here’s hoping that the three who worked on this go on into the animation industry full bore, because I sit here EAGERLY awaiting whatever else may be percolating in their imaginations.
