Fury Fingers: ‘Pac-Man: Come Out To Play’

FF PacMan - featuredMuch to our delight, our favourite Aussie filmmakers, Fury Fingers, have gone retro with their latest offering: ‘Pac-Man: Come Out To Play‘ – a gritty Pac-Man reboot inspired by the classic movie The Warriors.

FF-PacMan1The film stars the talented fight choreographer Anthony Rinna as Pac-Man and the awesome Sweezy freerunning team as the parkour gang / ghosts. Impressively, it was filmed guerrilla-style in Adelaide over 5 nights for next to nothing.
