In 2011, Wes Ball released his animated short Ruin. Because of it, 20th Fox Studios gave him the opportunity to make the adaptation of James Dashner’s popular novel a reality. An epic filmmaking career began.
Earlier this month we were invited to create a two and a half minute short film as part of a competition run by Parrot (who make amazing MiniDrone’s) and 20th Century Fox to celebrate the DVD/Blu-Ray release of The Maze Runner. Our short competed against nine other amazing films from all over the world – with the winner given the unique opportunity to present their short in Hollywood at the Fox Studios.
