Storyboard Description

Zach is a forest ranger who works in an office. He yearns to be in the forest and feel like a ranger people see in movies and tv shows. He finally gets an opportunity to go help out with a wilderness event, but fails to read the details. Expecting to be out leading a group on a hike, he gets stuck in a mascot outfit handing out brochures. Disgruntled, he storms off into the woods and gets lost. He comes to the conclusion that he's not cut out to be a real forest ranger and gives up. His coworkers find him, rescue him, and shame him. From there on out, he lives out his career behind a desk, content and at peace with his cozy office setting.
