Wastelander Panda

First released in 2012, Wastelander Panda has attracted plenty of attention recently after the upcoming premiere of a ten part series on ABC Australia was announced on Twitch Film. An imaginative apocalyptic tale with a unique twist, this has all the marks of a successful cult phenomenon.

The idea of Wastelander Panda was conceived by Victoria Cocks and Marcus McKenzie during a university lecture. A joke at first, the concept became more serious over time, and they began to entertain the idea of a TV series.

Victoria, a first time writer/director, teamed up with Producer Kirsty Stark and DOP Vivyan Madigan at Epic Films to develop the concept further. Hoping to one day make a full-length Wastelander Panda TV series, they decided to start small, making a three minute Prologue to test the idea.

On January 24th, 2012, the Wastelander Panda Prologue was released online.

Some of the team’s highlights and achievements so far have included:

Within three days, the Prologue had over 100,000 views and had been seen in 150 countries around the world. Harnessing this success, and with amazing support from fans, the team then developed three new Wastelander Panda web chronicles, designed to be released as part of an interactive website.

From this point forward, the team’s goal is to continue making more Wastelander Panda. They currently have outlines drafted for an extended web series, as well as a full-length, one hour TV series.

They would love to tell the entire story, and hope that you’ll want to see more too. If you loved the episodes, please take the time to share them with friends.
