Guys, guys, guys! I have exciting news!

I’m directing a pilot for a web series this semester (which also happens to be my last, sob sob) and the theme ladies and gentlemen, is STEAMPUNK. Yes! For those of you who are unsure as to what it is, allow me to enlighten you to my take on it, as there are quite a few different opinions floating around out there. Imagine a world where steam has been used to develop technology, only steam. There’s no industrial revolution, no mobile phones, no cars. But there are airships and rayguns (big maybe) and women are equal to men in every way. It’s like the world is stuck in the Victorian age but are more advanced in some things simultaneously. And it’s so cool! It’s seen more of as an alternate reality and doesn’t really rely on legitimacy. Better not do anyway because I’m planning on doing this my way ha.

Essentially, this story is something like Sherlock Holmes, of course, but with a female lead called Gwendolyn Carrioncrow. She’s smart, she’s feisty and she’s fearless; she’ll stop at nothing to solve a case and she’ll do virtually anything to get what she wants. No, not like that! You disgust me. She’s very self assured but refuses to get close to people, after her parents died when she was just twelve and was forced to live with her elderly (and senile) aunt.

But enough of her! Let’s get down to business! Of course, similar to the last project, we are setting up a Kickstarter campaign to help raise funds. We are also hopefully holding a fund raiser which will include a bun sale and a quiz in York because steampunk, my friends, is NOT cheap. It’s all in the detail you see and it’s going to be a lot of hard work and money to make it look right. All I ask is that when the Kickstarter is live, please at least take a look at it (I will link it of course) and if you can, donate something, anything. We would be so grateful. I just want this film made so badly, it’s my last ever semester at university and I really want it to go well.

Now, I’m sure you’re tired of me banging on so I will bid you adieu for now and munch on a biscuit or something. Farewell, and I’ll update you later on in the project 🙂
