Hey guys, today I’m sharing another dieselpunk short film.
It isn’t all that easy finding dieselpunk films, and apparently it’s even harder finding information about them.
This one was produced by Day 304 Productions and is inspired by a character – Salazar Strega – who first appeared in the web steampunk series Dirigible Days. It is also heavily influenced by Lovecraft’s imagery.
I think this is actually the best part of the film. It is a short one, and relies more on atmosphere and sensations than on true storyline. You get the feel of the era (this is WWII) and the mood (this is speculative). You get scattered images and info and you have to patch a story together.
But setting, mood, and ideas are there and that’s why I enjoyed it.
How about you?
