"The tale of the last remaining panda in a post-apocalyptic wasteland."
So begins the pitch for Wastelander Panda, the latest project from Aussie outfit, EPIC FILMS.
The story follows the last remaining panda in a post-apocalyptic wasteland as he struggles against the monstrous remnants of mankind's last breath. Though still in the early stages of development, the teaser looks pretty amazing. Shot entirely on Arri Alexa and RED ONE cameras, the team has certainly achieved a powerful cinematic look and feel. Presently, they are in search of further funding to complete the project through a series of webisodes and eventually a full-fledged television series.
"Knowing that the idea of a film about a panda in a wasteland is difficult to convey through words, we created a three minute prologue of the series to help funding bodies and television station understand the style and tone of the film. We then uploaded the prologue to Vimeo.
Within five days, we had over 100,000 online views, from people in 140 countries around the world.
The response has been amazing, and we're now taking the project to the next level by making a series of Wastelander Panda web episodes to lead into the full television series of hour-long episodes."
