Where do I begin to describe everything that is right about this fan film trailer by Writer/Director James Farr and Steelehouse Productions’ for Pac-Man the Movie? I suppose I can’t do the trailer justice so just go ahead and watch it…make sure to read the ticker at the bottom of the news broadcast!
After the trailer ended I felt an overwhelming sense of despair. This is a fan film trailer. Never will I be able to step up to the box office and ask for a ticket to Pac-Man the Movie. I’ll never learn if Pac-Man and his handlers help to make the world a better place.
I’m thinking that James Farr needs to sit down with Namco and throw this trailer up on Kickstarter so they can get the necessary funds to make this film a reality!
You can find out a bit more on the creation of this trailer over at Project Yellow Sphere. Here is an excerpt from their page:
“THE GREATEST 80S MOVIE NEVER MADE
In the 80s, it was all about Pac-Man.
PAC-MAN was the very first arcade game we ever played. It was the first Atari 2600 cartridge we ever owned. It was the first Saturday morning cartoon we watched religiously, and to this day, our favorite (yet sadly discontinued) brand of pasta. We grew up with this character. Spent countless hours with him. But in all that time, the one thing we wanted the most … the one thing we fully expected … never happened. Why, we wondered, did they never make a PAC-MAN MOVIE?
The answer to that, of course, is breathtakingly simple. PAC-MAN made no sense.”
I would like to give a big thanks to Chris Sims over at Comics Alliance for the heads up on the trailer!
