“This is one of the most close adaptations of The Modern Prometheus that I have ever seen, and as a lover of literature I was glad to see it follow the book so closely. I really appreciated that the ‘monster’ was given his voice and was fully articulate the way that Shelley intended.”

Review of Frankenstein’s Monster (a steampunk-light Independent Film) posted by Steampunk Library– a website dedicated to strengthen literacy through incorporating steampunk in school library collections.
“…I highly suggest it for classrooms and libraries that want a visual companion for the novel. It will likely keep younger viewers’ attention better than a recorded play thanks to it’s score and sweeping artistic landscape shots.”

Thank you JoshPunk for your review. For those who don’t know, JoshPunk reviews all things Steampunk and is a good source for steampunk reads.
“This adaption followed the original fairly accurately. There were few tweaks and a great version of how they took the monster’s need for a wife, but all in all, it was Frankenstein. It held my attention with good acting, but like all adaptions, I love seeing how they used the source material and made it their own. I felt this one stuck to it too closely without adding too much to it.”

It has been a long road–but we can finally say that we’re released! Thank you everyone who has followed our film. 30+ sci-fi conventions and film fests and we’re in awe. Right now, in it’s early days. The MOST important thing for our film is ratings. Please write everyone you know and ask to give an honest review of the film (considering budget size). Ratings in the next week are crucial for the film’s ability to show up in the new releases Amazon listing.
Unless you saw the film outside of Comicpalooza OR one of the Menza meetings–you saw the unabridged version of the film. We’ve released a 86 minute (28 minutes shorter) version of the film on Amazon.
February is our month.

Thank you again everyone.
The following interview is an excerpt from We’ve Created a Monster,” an unfinished documentary about the making of the microbudget film ‘Frankenstein’s Monster’ (2014).
Were you at ApolloCon in 2013 or 2014? Then maybe you remember this trailer playing at our booth.
Here are a few photos of props made by Margaret Marie Hubbard and Jeffrey Walton for the film. Included are the Monster’s heart, progress photo and completed photo. Justine’s neck brace, progress photo and completed photo. Also, a photo of the gears made for the Monster’s neck piece. This was attached to the Monster and was made to actually shoot steam out of it. These gears are completely original items. I drew up the plans for crafting them and Jeffrey Walton used a CNC machine to craft the base gears and a die grinder to sculpt and shape it. Everything for the neck gears was made specifically for the amazing Matt Risoldi who played The Monster.
Thank you for your continued support!
Cogs & Gears,
