John Kahrs’ Paperman Oscar sends Sheridan Animation Students a ‘Selfie’

A couple of months ago, we hosted John Kahrs, a Disney animator who made a short film called Paperman. He showed his film to a packed audience and spent hours with students looking at their reels. Then Paperman got nominated for an academy award and we thought the least we could do was send him our congratulations. Then Paperman won for Best Short Animated film and John Kahrs made sure we knew, sending us this pic of his trophy and our card.
