My group really liked the idea of doing something similar to the Paperman animation but we were told that it’s not really possible since we don’t have access to the software that Disney used. Conann suggested that we have a lot into how they actually made it look 2D so I decided to have a look into it.
I found a video on Youtube which explains their process and why they wanted it to look like 2D. The software they used was meander which they created to get the artists to take to 3d and still be able to use their drawings within 3D animation.

I also found this website through the Paperman facebook page, which shows the progression of Paperman which also has the video shown above.
