Make A Wish Foundation

A couple of weeks ago we were asked by the Dutch Make A Wish Foundation, a non profit organization established to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions, to help fulfill the wish of a young man; Mats van Balen. Mats is a big fan of Johnny Depp and Pirates of the Caribbean. So we wrote a little story for a short pirate film Mats could star in. Then we teamed up with animation studio Mirage 3D to film Mats against a green screen as the famous Captain Jack Sparrow Mats! Later in the studio we put Mats in different scenes. Mats even helped animating some of the characters and scenes!
Check out the short film 'The Adventures of Captain Mats" below:

It was a really fun day; check out some photos below:

*BONUS* Here are some of the awesome backgrounds Ben made for the film:

Hope you enjoyed this day Mats! We sure did!
