Slated for release in the second quarter of 2016, design and concept work has begun in Spain while the 3D production for the film has commenced in Tangent’s Production Offices in Winnipeg and Toronto.

Written by Juan Ramón Ruiz de Somavía and directed by Alberto Rodriguez, the film tells the story of a lovable family pet “Ozzy” who is placed in a luxury kennel while his family heads on a once in a lifetime trip to Japan. Unbeknownst to the family and Ozzy, the luxury kennel is a front to an evil toy sweatshop empire, producers of the very toys Ozzy plays with at home.

‘Run Ozzy Run’ is a fun and fresh twist on the classic prison break movie. Ozzy works with his new found friends and uses his unique speed to devise a complicated and hilarious escape plan.
