Out Of Bounds
Out of Bounds tells the tale of a phobia plagued pet owner, and his relationship with his 179th fish, who have all been called Paul. While dealing with a mixture of agoraphobia and a healthy dose of obsessive compulsion, we're given an intimate look at his rather stressful life. However, an unexpected event ultimately tests his love for his fish and leads him to face his deepest fears.
Created by students at the Animation Workshop in Denmark, the short employs a lovely CG style with plenty of painterly elements throughout. Loved the subtlety in storytelling of this short, which kind of reminded me of another Animation Workshop short we featured recently, Unimagined Friends.
