“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.”

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!

Thank you so much Rosecity Steampunk Film Festival! We are honored to have been part of your festival lineup!
Oregon is one of the key places in the US that supports steampunk arts, culture and technology. This festival is an important part of continuing that endeavor.
One of my favorite things about the convention circuit is participating in panels. I enjoy speaking about filmmaking, steampunk, literature, and screenwriting. SpaceCityCon’s panel is up there on my list. It was my pleasure to join Matt Risoldi (monster), Christopher Lowe (tech. dir, props), J’Nean Henderson (costumes), and Peter Kovic (co-editor, documentarist) to talk about the challenges of microbudget filmmaking. One of the things I love about our larger panels is that we share our tools and tricks we used for making a film. -Judith B. Shields
From Land of Nerds:
“Christopher recommends that to build props for a low-budget film you need to find someone who can take a look at random bits of things found in a hardware store. Just a little imagination and a few bits of scrap can go a long way to building some amazing props.”

We just got word from Weird West Fest (Giddings, TX) that due to expected weather conditions, the western and steampunk festival will be postponed until next Saturday, Dec. 14th. Frankenstein’s Monster will still be screened at 4pm. However, the screenwriting panel Judith B. Shields will moderate may have its time shifted. Updates on that will be on their official website and on this post when news arrives.
