What if steam really could be used to bring someone back to life? The first of the great Greek philosophers, Thales, once spoke of water as the origin of everything. Even today, through the experiments of Japanese scientist, Dr. Masaru Emoto, we have learned that water has the ability to be impressed upon, and reactively manifest patterns to our words and emotions. If water be the major constituent of our human being, what if that great light we go to at the end of it all is simply our spirit evaporating towards the Sun like dew before the day? The implication of such, that a body could somehow be consciously reanmiated by steam, seems quite plausible.
Hi everyone! Judith B. Shields here. I just wanted to share some moments from the shoot.
Here we have a few moments from when Victor Frankenstein returns home and also a shot of young William Frankenstein playing in a field.
We still have 14 scenes left to shoot in March. However, we’ve started the post-production process for the other scenes. Matt G. is editing video first then the audio team will tackle the project. Even though is seems a little quiet here on the blog–it isn’t quiet in the production. The lead team has been meeting about two nights a week reviewing the dailies. We’re very excited about what we’re building. I cannot wait to share with all of you Frankenstein’s Monster. Once we hit the independent film circuit, I’ll keep this blog updated as we know when we’ll be shown at a city near you. Thank you again for your support!

Here is small sneak peak of some moments in the first 10 minutes of Frankenstein’s Monster.
Hi, Judith B. Shields here. I just wanted to give a quick update. We’ve been in the middle of filming for the last two weeks and we have one week to go. I am amazed at the progress we’ve made. Thank you everyone for your support.
So what’s new? We’re in the Galveston Daily News today–sixth page, straight off of the press in the “county” section.
Thank you Little Green Schoolhouse for allowing us to shoot at your location!
It’s about passion for fashion. These are not all the costumes, but just a handful. Elizabeth’s wedding dress will be kept under wraps until the film is released. The same will go for the monster’s look and costume.
In the world of Frankenstein’s Monster (2013), Victor’s obsession over Prometheus’ Spark, causes him to dive into multiple sciences. It is in his laboratory and through his creation that we will see steampunk elements shine. Some steampunk elements will not as obvious as others. Expect wood, metal, a claustrophobic environment, bronze, steam, symbolism, and other sciences represented.
A contrasting world will be created compared to Victor and his laboratory. The outside world exists in American Southern forests and nearby estuaries. It gives a feeling of isolation that matches Mary Shelley’s impressions. Women’s costumes will lean either Southern or Western. Most dresses will be either pastels or neutrals. Lots of frills. Some dresses with hoop skirts. All of the costumes are 19th Century.
