Dave Made a Maze

Synopsis: 'Dave Made A Maze' re-imagines classic 80's adventure films with a modern comedic edge and a higher body count. 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. The handmade fantasy world comes to life with puppetry, stop-motion animation, and in-camera optical illusions, re-igniting the tactile sense of wonder from the movies of our childhoods.

stuff out here, it's a mess.

You know you're the one that's going

to have to clean up all this cardboard

once he takes up,


You Ok?

I'm fine.

He's lost in a cardboard

maze in our living room.

Not true.

He's lost in a cardboard maze

in your living room

that he built.

It's way stupider.

- Thanks.

- Hmm.

He said he's been in there

for three days.

Where do you think

he poops and stuff?


I haven't had

anything to eat for a while.


You haven't eaten anything?

I had some trail mix,

a little beef jerky,

you know, construction food.

But that was a while ago.

And I didn't build a toilet,

and I'm not going to shit

on our floor!

- Are you Ok?

- Yeah, I'm fine.

I just, I kinda hurt my hand.

Let me guess, paper cut?

Yeah, kind of.

Is it bad?

Are you all right?

No, it's fine.

I'm fine.

Don't worry, guys.

Hey, I think

it's time we lift it up

and you crawl out.

What am I, a worm?

And I can't, because

I taped it to the carpet.

You're kidding.

It's sealed tight.

Wait, let me just...

Jesus Christ!


What are you even doing?

Whoa, whoa, whoa.

Please don't do that.


Oh, my god!

I can hear that!

Gordon, keep knocking!

Why did I not think of this?

So simple!

Keep knocking, Gordon!

Knock away, baby!

Yeah! Wait. Oh, shit. Gordon?

I can't hear you knocking.

I've gone too far.

Nah, I was just kidding.

- Awesome.

- What?

I'm lost again.

Just, follow the knocking.

I wish it was that easy.

I built this thing too tricky.

What are we supposed to do?


Make sandwiches, put them in baggies.

And then throw them into

the labyrinth, yeah,

and then hopefully

I'll find one.

This is really good. I'm gonna

call Leonard real fast.


Can you please come out?

Annie, I want to,

I just, I can't.

Dave is trapped in a cardboard
