SLC Fanboys Andy Farnsworth and Tysen Webb are at the 2017 Slamdance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, talking about the movie "Dave Made A Maze" with the indie film's director/co-writer Bill Watterson, and stars Nick Thune, Meera Rohit Kumbhani, and Adam Busch.
"Dave Made a Maze" is about Dave (Thune), an artist who has yet to complete anything significant in his career, builds a fort in his living room out of pure frustration, only to wind up trapped by the fantastical pitfalls, booby traps, and critters of his own creation. Ignoring his warnings, Dave's girlfriend Annie (Khumbani) leads a band of oddball explorers (Busch, James Urbaniak) on a rescue mission. Once inside, they find themselves caught in an ever-changing supernatural world, threatened by booby traps and pursued by a bloodthirsty Minotaur.
Bill Watterson’s feature debut re-imagines classic 80s adventure films with a modern comedic edge and a higher body count. The handmade fantasy world comes to life with puppetry, stop-motion animation, and in-camera optical illusions. More than 30,000 square feet of donated/scrap cardboard was used in the creation of more than 20 unique sets.
