Video by CanvasPop: 11 Paper Place

This video is a beautiful piece of art in its own right. The animation, characters, music, and wordless storytelling all blend together to contrive a truly imaginative short-film. The video is titled “11 Paper Place“, and was directed by Vermont-based filmmaker Daniel Houghton.

The story is based on two 8.5 x 11″ pieces of office paper that magically come to life as a man and woman. The two meet upon entering a recycling bin and immediately fall madly in love.

The world they live in is a complex city constructed entirely of other bits of recycled paper that has also made its way into the bin. Sadly the short film ends in tragedy when the recycling bin is emptied, and their city is destroyed.

We really admire the amount of talent and hard work that goes into creating these types of films. “11 Paper Place” is definitely worth the watch if you have a few minutes to spare. We hope you enjoy!
