Introducing a groundbreaking technique that seamlessly merges computer-generated and hand-drawn animation techniques, first-time director John Kahrs takes the art of animation in a bold new direction with the Oscar®-nominated short, “Paperman.” Using a minimalist black-and-white style, the short follows the story of a lonely young man in mid-century New York City, whose destiny takes an unexpected turn after a chance meeting with a beautiful woman on his morning commute. Convinced the girl of his dreams is gone forever, he gets a second chance when he spots her in a skyscraper window across the avenue from his office. With only his heart, imagination and a stack of papers to get her attention, his efforts are no match for what the fates have in store for him. Created by a small, innovative team working at Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Paperman” pushes the animation medium in an exciting new direction.

Johannes Pistrol rides a fine 2500m peak in the Karwendel, Austria, at the end of November 2011. Unusually late snow fall and dry conditions mean that the alpine riding season just goes on and on. During sunset the whole mountain turned red for 10 minutes, was totally awesome! Song is “Near You” by 10centSunday.

Many people ask why Steve is SO HAPPY when he plays the cello. We followed him around with our cameras on his day off. We think we now understand why… 🙂
**NO INSTRUMENTS WERE HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THIS VIDEO** — we used a “stunt” cello for these scenes just in case — and we were really careful out of respect for the instrument. After all the filming, “Jackie” (named after Jackie Chan since he does all his own stunts) only had one minor scratch inflicted by a shopping cart… (this proves the saying that statistically there are more shopping cart accidents than sky diving accidents)
Story behind the song:
This music video was one of our very first ideas as ThePianoGuys. It originated when we were filming “The Cello Song” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ry4BzonlVlw) — the first project that Steven Sharp Nelson, Al van der Beek, Tel Stewart, and Paul Anderson did together (which is also the first time they all MET!) As we were finishing the all-night film session, we starting talking about the many “uses” of the cello and before we knew it we were laughing about how funny it would be to make a movie about “cello bonding” — spending quality time with the cello. We didn’t feel like we could ever get away with making this video, but we just couldn’t help ourselves 🙂 For a while Al and Steve tried to write an arrangement of two Bob Marley tunes for the background of the video. It wasn’t flowing, so the project was abandoned for several months. Since the making of “Cello Wars” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BgAlQuqzl8o) we haven’t really had the opportunity to throw “funny” at our audience. And to be honest, we’ve missed it. We all love to laugh — especially at ourselves. 🙂 It keeps the pressure of producing videos every other week bearable…so we revisited this concept, but this time with a new tune — the Turtles “So Happy Together.” It fit perfectly. We ended up with a lot more scenes than we could use—some of which we were sad we couldn’t fit it. Maybe we’ll make an “extended version” one day…
“This video is dedicated to all of my music teachers that taught me to have FUN with music — to let it live and breathe rather than insist it be dead and dissected. As for my other music teachers that didn’t teach me to have fun…I’ll try to make a video for you some other time.” 🙂 –Steven Sharp Nelson
