For Zach Braff’s follow up feature to Garden State, Zach wanted to explore a greater fantasy world. He has a level of visual sophistication that had not been represented in his films to that point. During the course of this story, there are moments where Aiden, the main character, is under tremendous stress. At these moments, he retreats into his fantasy. These fantasy worlds are vast and our hero is accompanied by a robot squire named JAX.

It was satisfying to explore strange terrain and bring our hero and his squire JAX to life. One of the biggest challenges was bringing studio level visual effects to an indie feature. For this, we were fortunate to have a team of passionate artists who fell in love with the story and our little buddy.
