If you had any sort of childhood, you watched Disney movies. Whether you grew up with Fantasia or The Lion King, you know how good old school, hand drawn Disney movies are.
This short film, Paperman brings back some of that charm. Although not actually hand drawn (they used new software called Meander) this one goes back to Disney’s roots. It’s 6 minutes but tells a story of not giving up and going after something/someone you want.
This is how it was done back in the day. There wasn’t Tinder or Facebook or catfishing. Guys weren’t pussies. If you wanted to get the girl, you had to man up and put some serious work in. You know what it also reminds me of? Get ready ladies…reminds me of Ryan Gosling in The Notebook. Writing letters everyday, building a house, making out in the rain. Power move after power move after power move. Same thing here. Paper airplanes one after the other. And you know what? It worked. Works in all aspects of life. Ask Wayne Gretzky…”you miss 100% of the shots you never take.” They don’t call him “The Great One” for nothing.
But seriously, take 6 minutes to watch this. It’s well worth your time. If you don’t like it you’re either a ginger or simply have no soul.
