Aurora - an outstanding new Steampunk movie has been released...



I received word the other day from my good friend and fellow New Babbage resident Duke Edward Pearse about a new Steampunk movie which was recently released very late last month.  This production, titled Aurora is, as my comrade with the cinematographic eye described...


"South Australian indie filmmakers Urtext have just released the live-action Steampunk movie Aurora after some 3 1/2 years in the making.


Shot in and around the Adelaide area, Aurora tells the story of an airship crew in a determined quest to liberate the victims of ruthless slavers. The finished film belies its impressively small budget of $1800, using eight locations, over 80 costumed extras and 375 VFX shots: a significant undertaking in independent film making.


Aurora premièred on the 1st of August to over 300 people at the Piccadilly cinema in North Adelaide, and the full 30 minute, widescreen film can now be viewed online at: http://aurorathefilm.com/"


... or just above, as one can see!  An excellent endeavor, an a tip of the hat to those who had the passion to make the production!  Its a tad over a half hour, but I assure you, time will fly by as you watch it!

(Also, a tip of the hat to Duke Pearse - ty, sir!)
