Raised in the small Florida town of Lake Como, Wes stayed local in attending Florida State University where he earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree in film production. It is here that Wes first gained attention for his first animated student film, A WORK IN PROGRESS. That film was honored with a Student Academy Award by the Academy of Motion Pictures and Fine Arts. Off of the success of A WORK IN PROGRESS, Wes sold his first feature film idea, THE TREEHOUSE, to Warner Brothers Pictures. Shortly after laying the foundation for the independent animation company, Wes found himself working alongside Tom Hanks on the IMAX-3D documentary MAGNIFICENT DESOLATION, where he was the Pre-Viz Animation Supervisor. In addition to this critically acclaimed project, Wes and his team have designed title sequences, created CG-animation and visual effects for such companies as Playtone, The Walt Disney Company, Universal Pictures, and Spike TV, among others. Wes' life changed greatly in March of 2012 with his digital release of the 3-D short film RUIN. The short was only a tiny glimpse at a larger story, but garnered over 5 million hits hits in its initial run online. The film catapulted Wes into the conversations of young directors to watch. Two months later, the feature version of RUIN sold to Fox Studios in a pre-emptive bid. That same week, the studio began talks for him to direct his first feature film, THE MAZE RUNNER, based on the best-selling YA novel by James Dashner. Wes went on to make his directorial debut with Fox on the film. THE MAZE RUNNER hit theaters in September 2014 and was a massive success, making ten times its budget at the box office. Wes just finished the sequel, THE SCORCH TRIALS, which will be released on September 18th this year. You can email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or follow us on Twitter @123Film

Running 100 miles has become common place among the growing community of Ultra Runners. Few can say they have run over 4600 miles across the Sahara Desert, to raise awareness of the need for fresh water in Africa for an HBO documentary titled “Running the Sahara”. Charlie can. He can also talk about his run across the United States or his most recent 7 day stage race in Ecuador that began at an altitude 12,000 ft. and continued with over 155 miles at altitude for the duration of the event. Yes, Charlie Engle is an extremely unique runner and is always fun to chat with. Listen as we catch up with one of the most colorful ultra-runners of our time.

Hi! This is my first episode of Indie/Film reviews! Today I am going to first play a song from Sonoio called Heartbeat and then I am going to review the critically appraised 2014 film The Mazer Runner! Hopefully this episode won't be interupted by anything. This is just a test run after all.
It's the first of many times in the next few months that we'll probably be using the word's "Best Movie of the Year", though I think this week is said most in earnest. Gravity the stuck in space drama featuring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock is drawing comments from "Best movie of the Year" to "Pushing the bounds of cinema!". Then we have Justin Timberlake facting up against Ben Affleck in the off-shore gambling thriller Runner, Runner.

On tonight's episode we play super-fun games Character Cage Match, where we pit fictional characters against each other in epic battles (for example Sherloc Holmes vs Inspector Gadget), and Geeky Dating Profile, where we come up with zany online dating profiles for superheroes and other characters! Plus it's our Awesome Patreon Peeps episode where Patreon supporters, Alexander Martin and Eros Arocho, join us on the show to discuss Blade Runner 2, new James Bond movie SPECTRE, and what movies we actually would like to see a sequel to!
Sam Ganow asks me what Defines someone in to being called a runner, so we decide to have a conversation to see how he defines a runner and how many others are probably in his same shoes. It is an intersting topic and I look forward to hearing the feedback.
We're back! This week your favorite geeky ladies review "The Maze Runner" starring the kid from MTV's Teenwolf abomination, the kid from "We're The Millers" and that kid from Game of Thrones. Based on the YA novel of the same name, "The Maze Runner" is the story of Thomas, a boy who awakens in an elevator and is deposited in a Lord of The Flies type compound filled with other mildly dirty, yet impossibly well-coifed teenage boys. The boys can't remember anything about their previous lives (except their names) or how they arrived in "The Glade". They only know their one shot at escape is through the imposing, monster-filled Maze that surrounds their compound. Tune in to find out if this sci-fi action flick is worth your hard earned money or if you should save your $14 and just read the book.
