Cartoon Production Information:

Director Grant Orchard was looking to do a quick project as a break from a large, ever more complicated script he was working on, and had always loved this one-paragraph account of a city dweller's casual encounter with a chicken. Sweetly humorous and intriguing -- but also brilliantly slight -- the story seemed ideal. Ultimately, this new "small, quick project" ended up taking two years to make during studio downtime, and in addition, instead of simply making one short story, Orchard decided the story would be three times better if it were made three times in three different ways!

As Orchard says: "There is something in the constant repetition of the story that intrigues and yet underlines the utter whimsy of it all, and I like the narrative conflict in that."

The film was entirely self-funded by Studio aka, utilizing people's talents in between commercial work. The film's three chapters were made mostly in XSI, but rendered in distinct styles, requiring additional art working in After Effects, Flash and Photoshop.
