Back To The Wasteland

It’s been a big couple of week’s on Wastelander Panda. We’ve now officially started pre-production and the shoot is only a few weeks away!

Last week, we set off on a bunch of location recces across the Adelaide area. This time around, we’re aiming to keep as much of the shoot as close to the city as possible to save time and money. We’ve got a lot to cram in and not a lot of time to do it in.
First stop was another trip to Second Valley, a great spot off the coast that we’re hoping will stand in for a wasteland fishing village.



It might look like Viv’s taking a selfie, but he’s actually doing really important cinematography things.

Then it was off to an abandoned mine. A slice of the wasteland close to the city.

(Director for scale)

We also went back to one of our previous locations in Port Adelaide, which we’re keen to use again (just in a different part). We also took a trip down below some of the other old buildings around the Port, which was frankly, terrifying.

Spot the DOP

On Monday, we officially started pre-production! We’ve all moved down to a studio space so we can keep Production, Costume and Art departments close together.

For the rest of this week we’ll mostly be scheduling the shoot and having heaps of meetings to make sure everything’s ready to go by the time we roll.
Don’t forget to follow us on FacebookTwitter or Tumblr to keep up to date with what’s going on in the Wasteland!

It’s happening. Today is our first day of pre-production on six new episodes of Wastelander Panda! Get excited for more updates and pics from pre as we gear up for our shoot in April.
