The Oscar-nominated black-and-white animation is available for all to see.

Disney's throwback cartoon short Paperman has hit the web for fans and awards voters alike.

The Oscar-nominated short first was seen at the Annecy Animation Festival and played in front of the November hit Wreck-It Ralph. A black-and-white blend of hand-drawn and computer animation directed by John Kahrs, the film tells the story of a guy who notices a woman on the train platform and then in the office window across the street.

Stuck in a paper-pushing prison of an office, he does his best to catch her attention but is at the mercy of the wind's whim, as it takes his paper airplanes far from their intended destinations.
