The sermon series Unlikely was based on the Book of Jonah. The week before each sermon an animated trailer was played in the services to preview next week's message.

The concept was created by Nick Kelly and me. We met in Starbucks and discussed how fun it would be to do a South Park style animation for the series. A low grade animation of sorts.

In the meeting where we presented the idea it was a hard sell because the church had never done anything like that before. The idea was unheard of compared with the usual assortment of ideas. However, Nick and I really sold the idea and thus we were given the green light to do a thirty second trailer for the message. Perhaps it was arrogance on my part, but I did not even bother with the thirty second limit. I knew the idea we had was gold and I went ahead and scripted the entire first chapter. When everyone saw the finished product for chapter one, no one brought up the time limit but rather if they could see the next chapter.
