15three animation concept

The concept at is base:

Title: Hot in Here.

Story Line: Maintenace man Yanni-Tur runs into a 'heated' discussion with the unruly furnace in the basement.

Characters:

Yanni-Tur: Middle Age janitor, good guy, but can't quit get things done correctly

Furnace: Irritable, and uncooperative old furnace... Grumpy as all grumpy...

Style:
A mix of 2d animation and 3d enviornments.... Very stylized approach... 3d environment is used primaly to do fun and interesting camera moves that otherwise may be a bit challenging to do with strictly 2d animation...

Original Inspiration sketch...
