Pac-Man Movie Short

Wakka wakky! Yea, here we go. Following that Tron-like Mega Man X low budget short we featured the other day, numerous readers kept telling me to watch and feature another great YouTube short based on a video game, but this time it's something completely wacky. The short is titled just Pac-Man, essentially Pac-Man: The Movie, a full-on six minute long Tron-meets-Matrix-meets-Michael Bay-style take on the 8-bit classic game. It was just revealed in full by Machinima last week. Yep, it's as fantastic as everyone is saying, and a very fun watch for the holiday weekend if you've got nothing else better to watch. See it below!

Hope everyone is happy that I finally posted this short film, too! Pac-Man, or "Project Yellow Sphere", was directed by James Farr, who also wrote and stars in this (as the nerdy guy who controls the joystick). For more info, visit ProjectYellowSphere.com or for more info on the production group that made this, called Steelhouse Digital, visit their YouTube or official website. Apparently the inspiration behind this Project Yellow Sphere, Pac-Man movie, was simply: "What was the greatest 80's movie never made?" Definitely a lot of fun, and well-made, of course, but I'm still a fan of Mega Man X. What did you think of Pac-Man?

    I always felt bad for those little ghost guys until now. They looked pretty evil in this. And Pacman kinda looks like deadmau5's mask without the ears
