When PAC-MAN, a video game and popular culture icon, meets art.

The PAC-MAN X ORLINSKI Kickstarter campaign is presented to you by Neamedia, in collaboration with worldwide contemporary artist Richard Orlinski and support and license from BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe.

PAC-MAN X ORLINSKI is an exciting and official project for the 37th anniversary of our beloved PAC-MAN. It is an exclusive collaboration between Neamedia and Richard Orlinski, supported by BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe. We came up with a beautiful sculpture available in 3 different versions: 2 versions of 25cm (which is quite big for a first size), one with an original yellow glossy color and another one with an alluring gold chrome finish. And last but not least, a worldwide limited edition: an incredible 1 meter PAC-MAN, limited to 37 pieces worldwide. You thought PAC-MAN could only be a little yellow dot? This one is huge.

We proudly reveal a PAC-MAN like you have never seen him before; beautiful and elegant but also reminiscent of the original pixilated PAC-MAN. This is a rare opportunity to get a piece by renowned and in-demand artist Richard Orlinski. More than just figures, these are pieces that you normally see in art galleries. Well today, you can have them for yourself and they are pretty affordable.

In addition to the main rewards, you'll be able to unlock stretch goals. A great way to show your love for PAC-MAN and get your hands on wonderful collectible items.

We are Neamedia and we have been designing, producing, manufacturing and delivering figures, collector edition and lifesize statues for 15 years now. We love video games... We have begun and grown Neamedia in the video games industry. Starting with small but exciting projects, we have developed our expertise to now work with the most prestigious game publishers and collaborate with them in worldwide game releases. Of course it doesn’t mean we don’t explore new opportunities anymore. Taking new paths has always been in our genes. This is why for PAC-MAN 37th anniversary, we wanted to bring something different, something challenging. We wanted to create a piece of art, available to everyone. Familiar with Richard Orlinski’s work, we knew his approach of art would fit this project. Art should be accessible to anybody, right? Orlinski is one of the best examples of an artist merging contemporary art and popular culture. And when you think about popular culture icons, we can fairly say that PAC-MAN has his place in the hall of fame. We mentioned Orlinski’s name to BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe. They loved the idea and immediately called to get him on board of the project.

And so it began. Bringing something fresh and modern to PAC-MAN while capturing his identity were definitely the key points of this project. It was without a doubt a very demanding task for Richard Orlinski. He took time to carefully design the piece of art. After several sketches, 3D rendering, prototyping, different materials, finishing and a lot of coffee, we came up with the sculpture that is presented to you today.

 

So you know the story, now let’s get to the point: the sculptures. They are produced by Neamedia, designed by Richard Orlinski and fully approved and supported by BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe. 3 different versions of the sculpture are available. There is one for everyone’s taste. We wanted to make big sculptures that could also fit your home, on your desk or as a decoration item. The 25cm / 10"

 is already quite impressive and definitely eye catching. The 1m version is huge! Trust us on that.

 

 

 

 

After several 3D rendering with different design by Richard Orlinski (without arms and legs, without eyebrows...), we settled on the final version on the right.

This is another prototype where we mixed the coating with yellow coloring agent. We did this to see if the final color (after the yellow glossy finish) would be brighter.

This project is a challenging and exciting one for us. For PAC-MAN 37th anniversary, we have decided to create a real piece of art collaborating with Richard Orlinski. We wanted to run this project through Kickstarter to reach the PAC-MAN and contemporary art communities worldwide. Even if we are used to creating unique objects, we normally deal with brands and not directly with communities. Kickstarter allows us to directly connect with you, gather your feedbacks and know what has real value for you (rewards, stretch goals...). We also like the fact the Kickstarter projects are brought to life by the community: you decide if this project and our work is worthy of interest.

Richard Orlinski sculpts to sublimate reality and creates beautiful, timeless and living pieces of art that arouse emotions.

Richard Orlinski is the best selling French contemporary artist in the world. His sculptures are designed around the theme « Born Wild » and reflect a deep reflection on animal instincts and human nature. His style is modern and never gives way to trash, extravagance ou passing trends.

Richard Orlinski’s art can be seen in more thant 90 galleries all over the world and in the numerous artfairs he is invited to. Nevertheless he wants to make art accessible to the greatest possible number of people and breaks codes by exhibiting sometimes outside and for free. Wether it is at the top of the slopes like in Courchevel or Val d’Isères in the French Alps or in cities like Paris or Saulieu, he likes to settle in atypical places in order to meet the audience. 

Curious by nature and eager to express his sensitivity through other disciplines he also developed a passion for music, cinema and theater. He launched his first single « Heartbeat » last year featuring famous Dutch singer Eva Simons. This song was number one in the French charts for 3 weeks in a row. His second single « Paradise » featuring Australian rising star Evangeline just came out and is already on his way to success too. He is currently working on other titles featuring more international music star. Michel Lafon editor publishes his biography which will be in all the bookshops on May 24th.

Risks and challenges

This is our very first Kickstarter campaign. Even if it is a new experience for our teams, we are seasoned experts in designing, manufacturing, shipping and delivering products worldwide for very demanding clients. You can be assured that your pledges will meet your expectations in terms of quality. The sculptures you see on the campaign page are prototypes, designed to match as close as possible the final sculpture …We have long experience of sculpting, molding, casting, painting, chroming or shipping products with very high perceived value for our customer be them brands or artists.

Delays in meeting our estimated delivery date are risks that have to be taken into consideration for a project like this one. Our experience and long term partnerships all over the world will allow us to mitigate those risks.

| License |

The PAC-MAN X Orlinski sculptures, artworks, keyrings, and figures have been developed by Neamedia with full support and license from BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment and artist Richard Orlinski. We are proud to say that they are the official sculptures and items for PAC-MAN 37th anniversary.

We have taken all the necessary measures to validate the visuals in advance. However products presented on this Kickstarter project may be subject to modification.

We also have to take into consideration that the license BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe granted us could end and this project would have to be shut down. This is very unlikely to happen but it is still a risk.

| Refunds |

We know that sometimes, situations change. Whatever the reason, if you find yourself seeking a refund, you may cancel your order during the funding phase. We recommend that you have a quick read of the Kickstarter terms and conditions before you pledge.

| Terms & conditions |

If you do not confirm your shipping and pledge details within deadline, we might have to consider your pledge as canceled.

You also accept that you are fully liable for incorrect shipping details and will risk your pledge being unable to be delivered or lost in transit.
