The Third – An Ender’s Game Fan Film
This is a film I shot when I was a student, years ago. We were super ambitious and planned on a graphics heavy video, which ended up being too much for students to finish. So a few months ago when we heard the feature film was coming out, we thought we would release our version. I learned so much from making this movie and I think it helped us grow tremendously as filmmakers.
