San Marcos theater to screen award winning independent film

July 27, 2017 by  

A brand new independent film is set to be screened in San Marcos, and the public is welcome to come out and watch this award winning fantasy themed production.

The film “Dave Made a Maze”, which was the recipient of the Slamdance audience award for Best Narrative Feature as well as other awards, tells the story of an artist, who after being frustrated during his creative process, decides to build a fort made from cardboard in his living room. He goes in to explore it, and winds up getting lost. His girlfriend puts a team of adventurers together to go and look for him, and they end up having to contend with a host of traps and fantasy creatures, all sourced from Dave’s imagination.

An assortment of techniques were used to craft the movie including puppetry, in camera optical illusions and stop motion animation and more. It was produced by John Charles Meyer and was directed by Bill Watterson. Its run time is 81 minutes, and there will be a discussion afterwards. A local printer can use poster printing to create souvenir promotional products for an event like this.

The screening of “ Dave Made a Maze” has been planned for August 3rd in the Christopher B. Smith Rafael Film Center. Tickets and additional information can be found on the center’s website.
