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.

At the online award ceremony we were extremely proud, excited and honoured to learn that ‘Terrarial’ has won Best Music (Paul Dawkins), Best Actor (Kyrié Capri) and Best Film.
