Final Draft: A pioneering learning program still in its developmental stages starts advancing at an accelerated pace when it is tasked to catalogue everything in the ocean. As it discovers more and more about the amazing creatures and plants that live there, and the horrors that humanity are wreaking on it, it becomes self-aware and determines ways to destroy/weaken humanity to save the world. The developers must decide whether to let it continue or shut it down – can they even shut it down???

Final Draft: Oscar the Ostrich is the most fabulous bird in the zoo. He wants to be able to sing and dance every day, but his cramped zoo cage is not big enough to hold his dreams of the stage and stardom. Then one day a Talent Scout comes to the zoo, and Oscar needs to pull out all the stops to convince her to break him out of his cage – and break him into Broadway!
