Broke indie UK filmmakers need your steampunk!

Ant sez, "We are shooting a micro-budget 'elegant-sci-fi' feature in the UK this summer - we sold our house to make the film (a little nuts, we know...but you only live once). We have built various bits of steampunk for one of the sets. Time is running out though, and we would like more. We wondered if any of your dear readers might loan us some of their work/have ideas of where to source things (on a shoestring budget). Any help would be dearly appreciated. Thank you! Unicorns all around."

[Ed: these seem like good people, but I don't know them personally; loan your precious steampunk stuff to them at your own risk]



  1. Could you film any of the scenes in VR like Second Life and then green-screen/chroma key actors on/into it?
    Theres lots of steampunk in SL and a maachinima/movie mix might be very interesting :)

      1. Agreed. Veto on the SL idea.

        The SL steampunk content might be inspirational for live action set design, but SL machninatography cannot be taken seriously.

        If you had the time and the inclination to use CGI effects, learn something like Maya.
