Finding Inspiration

Inspiration sometimes sneaks up on you. That’s what happened to me when I took my son to see Wreck-It Ralph, and prior to the movie the Disney Short “Paperman” was shown. I cannot properly expresses how amazing the creative genius of this short is, and it’s great to see that it was recently nominated for an Emmy. The emotions that hit me when I watch “Paperman” range from pure joy to complete disappointment. Please take 6 minutes out of your day and watch the video below, I promise you it will leave you inspired and give you a desire to do greater, more creative work in the future.

Thoughts on “Finding Inspiration”

  1. I too (along with the rest of the internet who saw this for the first time yesterday) was amazed at how much emotion can be delivered without even one word being said. The expressions on their faces, the camera cinematography, the soundtrack…even the lighting played such a heavy role in roping the view into sharing the experience of the characters on screen.
    It seems like the shorter format is just so much more effective in forcing the story tellers to quickly move the viewers through the steps they need to experience so that they will end up at the climax faster. Even looking at the Pixar movie “UP” from a few years back you are nearly in tears seeing the love story told on how the old man got to where he is now…all in just a few minutes. I would rather watch two hours of animated shorts then sit through a single motion picture that doesn’t move me the way these cleaver stories can.
