Out of the Ordinary is a bachelor film being made by 8 students from The Animation Workshop in Viborg, Denmark. It's a family comedy and will be made in 3D. Here we will update the progress of our production, so stay tuned. The film will be released late January/early February 2013.
The past few weeks we've been working on character design and developing the story. It's been quite a journey, and we've learned a lot.

John can’t figure out what the boss wants from him as he thinks he’s already working hard enough. After the boss almost breaks John’s most treasured belonging, a ship in a bottle, the computer and coffee machine come to life and decide that there is need for a change.
Here's some design explorations by the design team:
