The tale of the last remaining panda in a post-apocalyptic wasteland.
GOLD, GOLD, GOLD for Wastelander Panda! Congratulations to our cinematographer Vivyan Madigan who won 3 Gold Awards - one for each episode – at the SA/WA Australian Cinematographers Society Awards last night. He’ll now go on to compete at the National Awards in May 2014.
The ACS Awards are won on merit, so multiple Golds can be given in a category, as long as the cinematography reaches the standard required. Viv won his awards for Wastelander Panda in the Web category, where only three Golds, a Silver and a Bronze were awarded from all of the entries in both states.
The new episode scripts are almost finished and ready to be sent off with various funding applications, we took a quick trip to go and scout some prospective locations for inspiration.
We’re giving away a signed copy of our Wastlander Panda concept art! To enter, head over to this post and like the photo to go into the draw. We’ll randomly select the winner next week!
We just posted the final in our five part series on making Wastelander Panda at Hope For Film, Ted Hope‘s fantastic indie film blog. It’s been an honour to be able to share our experiences with Ted’s audience. If you’ve missed any, you can find them all on Hope For Film (presumably) until the end of time.
Of course, If you have any questions after reading them feel free to leave a comment on the post, on this post, in our ask box on our tumblr or tweet us at @wastelandrpanda and we’ll answer you. Any questions at all, really. It doesn’t even have to be about Wastelander Panda although we’re better at answering those kinds of questions.

We were very excited to have the opportunity to contribute to Ted’s blog. If you’re at all interested in indie filmmaking be sure to check it out. Ted and his group of contributors are alway very informative and insightful.
Here’s Vic getting into character.
Another kick-ass offering from concept artist Luke Marsden. You might recognise this guy as Hudson, the Sheriff of Raven.
