Dave, 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.
Gravitas Ventures will release DAVE MADE A MAZE in theaters and on VOD on Aug. 18, 2017 leading audiences to a whole new adventure! DAVE MADE A MAZE tells the story of an unaccomplished and frustrated artist (Thune) who builds a cardboard box fort in his living room and winds up trapped with a gang of oddball explorers in a fantasy world of his own creation, threatened by booby traps and a bloodthirsty Minotaur.
Reimagining the classic 80’s adventure films with a modern comedic edge, the handmade fantasy world of DAVE MADE A MAZE comes to life with puppetry, stop-motion animation, and on-camera optical illusions.
Dare to enter the fort?
