I normally restrict the animation projects on this blog to feature films and television series, but this commercial is too beautiful not to share. June is made by John Kahrs, who previously worked for Disney and Pixar, and got an Oscar for his short Paperman.
Directed by John Kars, “Paperman” is a beautiful effort, worthy of its nomination for Best Animated Short Film, reminding us that serendipitous encounters can lead us to find love when we least expect it.
