Fan film projects inspired from Mario to Sonic are a dime a dozen and rarely does something show up on the blogging grid that truly takes our breath away. Seemingly out of nowhere, James Farr, who was the writer, director, and starred in this little 6 minute film, takes everything you know about Pac-Man and reinvents him a way that you better believe Namco Bandai could only dream of doing.
It's no secret that I'm a fan of the Scott Pilgrim film, which is the greatest video game movie not based on a video game, but it did show gamers that it is possible to make something that even gamers could be proud of. But this Pac-Man movie, also known as "Project Yellow Sphere", gives us hope, a glimpse if you wil, a 6 minute hole in the wall that reveals that movies based upon some of the most beloved icons of gaming can really be done -- albeit studios would likely never ever let that happen, unless they get more hot girls to play scientists as James Farr did in this one.
If this was made into a full length feature-film would you go watch this as a midnight release?
