Steampunk Short Film: The Geographic Explorations of Jasper Morello

CINEMATHEQUE Banner 1

AnthonyLucas_clip_image005This hauntingly beautiful sojourn to an island in the sky is not for the fainthearted. It tells the tale of Jasper Morello, who embarks on an airship expedition and finds himself an unwilling cog in a mad scientist’s plot. It was released in 2005 and directed by Australian animator Anthony Lucas. The silhouette technique he employed was pioneered in the 18th century, and the sepia-soaked Gothic vibe is enhanced by steam and other atmospheric conditions which are animated in a more naturalistic way.
