TV & FILM INDUSTRY EFFECTS
THE MAZE RUNNER
Created for the film ‘The Maze Runner’. The Grievers terrorize the young kids who are left to their own devices in the middle of the maze in this dystopian thriller. For the most part in the film The Grievers were digital though a practical hero half was needed to be crushed between a wall so that the legs can be removed and various organic pieces removed. In addition tail sections were created and puppeteered for attack scenes.
Jason, Mike and the crew at Autonomous have been, and continue to be, excellent partners in creating the world of Stan Against Evil. And when I say obscure stuff like, “It should have sort of a Paul Blaisdell feel,” they instantly know what I’m talking about.
Jason and his team understand that creativity trumps all, while always understanding the budget and schedule. I love working with them.
Over the course of my many experiences with Jason Collins and Autonomous masterminding the prosthetic and creature effects on my shows I am his biggest fan. His artistry, ingenuity and knowledge seem to know no boundaries. Also, he is a helluva lot of fun to work with!
