Arcayus is the last remaining panda in a post-apocalyptic world, and Wastelander Panda is his story. After the release of the prologue in January and a successful crowd-funding campaign the project was able to spend three weeks in the Flinders Ranges filming three short episodes expected to be released early 2013. And with a spot at next year’s South By South West in Austin, Texas, who knows where Wastelander Panda will be heading next. Fresh back from the shoot writer & director Vic Cocks and cinematographer Viv Madigan joined us in the studio for an indepth chat about the shoot, where the project is heading next, and video game easter eggs.
