You know how it goes when you start a new job?  First, there is that initial odd excitement about tackling a steep learning curve.  Then, eventually, you find your office groove.  Yep, you learn who has the best stapler, where the best office snacks are, and ultimately you celebrate when that first paycheck finally lands on your cluttered desk. But, slowly over time, that old rebellious streak sneaks back into your thoughts and, of course, you can’t stop thinking about eating your coworkers–every single one of them.  Observe the antics as a wolf tries working in an office chock-full of plump and succulent sheep.  Slurp!  Of course, the naive and innocent sheep are so helpful to their new coworker.  But, will the gestures of goodwill from the tender sheep be enough to tame the wolf’s wild and bloodthirsty instincts?

Directed by PrimerFrame‘s founder Jaime Maestro and created by enrolled students, Friendsheep lures us in with a corporate twist on a traditional fairy tale model.  The quirky tension of a wolf working in an office with sheep is complimented with thorough details. While a heart-warming story with endearing character development, this animation also delivers a final treat with a gory and cathartic climax all in slow-motion glory.
