Found this independent masterpiece courtesy of the BBC, which though borders into the Edwardian era, maintains some classic Steampunk narratives – unique and intriguing science, an odd but friendly inventor, and a strange and fascinating device. Winner of the “Best Short Film” from the London Independent film festival, this small version is only a snippet of a proposed larger work. Though you can certainly watch the short here, I would also recommend visiting its homesite, as it also includes additional works showing how the film was made (aka, the “making of” shorts). Please enjoy!
