Can you tell a story without a word of dialogue? Check out Disney’s Oscar-nominated animated short, Paperman, for a wonderful example.
This beautiful animated short is up for an Oscar. YouTube has just the trailer, but the full 15-minute film is available for free right now on iTunes, supposedly until Oscar night. I highly recommend it — though you might keep a few tissues on hand for viewing the complete version.
With thanks to Colleen Mondor at Chasing Ray for bringing this to my attention on her blog.
