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.

Show 2.03, “A Wastelander Panda and His Few Best Men”

Director Stephan Elliott. Source: The Daily Telegraph

Stephan Elliott usually writes all the films he directs but he decided for a change of pace for his new film A Few Best Men. Dean Craig, the screenwriter behind Death at a Funeral, penned the script with a British cast in mind but Stephan was adamant he would film his next project in his home country. I asked him about translating the British script to an Australian setting and why he is sick of weddings.

Wastelander Panda Prologue from Epic Films on Vimeo.

And that is the tale of the last remaining panda in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Or at least it’s a taster of the tale. Adelaide production company Epic Films made this prologue to show the world their vision of Arcayus, the Wastelander Panda. The video has struck a chord with thousands of people worldwide with over 90 thousand views in the first five days of uploading. Writer, director and editor Victoria Cocks and producer Kirsty Stark came in to the studio to tell us the origins of the story and how they’re going to make their series. (And just how hot was it for the guy in the panda suit).

If you want to make Wastelander Panda a reality you can donate at their fundraising page and keep up to date via Epic Films facebook page.
