Visual Effects Featurette/Tutorial runs twelve minutes and eighteen seconds. It shows how a scene from the film is composited with After Effects software with a bit of silly fake Persian language humor worked in courtesy of Nathan Hopkins.
More from Allumination is a group of trailers for films including Moolah, Niagara Motel, Rising Genius, and See This Movie. All are presented in 4:3 letterbox format except for Niagara Motel which is 16:9 enhanced.
The film and extras are presented on a single dual-layered disc in a standard Amaray-style case with no insert. The cover art spoofs 300, while the on-disc art features the sculpted torso of Tim Larson as Claudius.
305 is an amusing diversion aimed at viewers familiar with both the 300 film and The Office television show that are willing to embrace a low budget cartoonish aesthetic. The 16:9 enhanced video and Dolby Digital 2.0 audio are more than acceptable for the source material, and the generous extras give an interesting snapshot of how the first DIY YouTube video to be adapted into a feature film was produced.
