Dave Made A MazeUnited States, 2017 : International Premiere
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. Ignoring his warnings, Dave's girlfriend Annie leads a band of oddball explorers on a rescue mission. Once inside, they find themselves trapped in an ever-changing supernatural world 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.
Brown University alumnus Bill Watterson studied at The Second City Hollywood and Los Angeles Community College. A series of web shorts he wrote and directed have led to a TV deal with Brandio Entertainment. Acting credits include the video games LA Noire and Lost Planet 3; the films Ouija, Jenny's Wedding, and Clint Eastwood's Jersey Boys; and TV's Brooklyn Nine Nine, The Soul Man, and The Young & The Restless.
