Frankenstein’s Monster may be showing at a Steampunk Convention near you!
First off, thank you everyone who supported us for Shockerfest! We are amazed by your kind words and support. If you haven’t voted for us for Sci-Fi Feature yet, please do so here.
Here are the upcoming screenings this weekend at JackoCon (Albuquerque, NEW MEXICO), OctopodiCon (Norman, OKLAHOMA), TeslaCon (Madison, WISCONSIN) , and Emerald City Steampunk Expo (Wichita, KANSAS).
First Step Cinematics, LLC will have a booth at Comicpalooza to promote Frankenstein’s Monster. Comicpalooza takes place at the George R. Brown Convention Center from May 24-26th.
Our Comicpalooza programming will include a special DIY panel on how to film on a budget. As soon as they announce the date of the panel, we will let everyone know. This will not be a screening. Our booth will include a raffle for autographed gear, a Mary Shelley quiz, and more. I’m personally excited that our little corner of the convention will part of a steampunk laboratory.
We have a limited time (and amount) of guest ticket rates.

I am very thankful for last weekend. Everyone worked hard together and we recreated Victor Frankenstein’s lab. Special credit goes to Chris Lowe and his amazing set design. I don’t know what was my favorite part of the lab: the coal, apothecary jars, the moving gears, or the pistons. That is describing only a small part of Chris’s awesome work.
Speaking of amazing things: the cast brought it all to life. Special shout out to Matt Risoldi and Dustin Sturgill.
Incorporating the steampunk look in Frankenstein’s Monster:
One of the artistic challenges of our steampunk-light project was how we were going to present steampunk in this story. All of our steampunk props and costume components are designed to practical. In other words: they work and they have purpose. For example: the life that Victor Frankenstein creates runs on steam. The tools he uses are practical. It goes beyond aesthetic. We have limited the steampunk elements for Victor Frankenstein in his lab and for his science experiments.
For now, we are keeping most of our lab scenes and the monster under wraps. We’ll be showing more at sci-fi conventions and also once we have our first official film premiere.
Frankenstein’s Monster will be shown and entered in film competitions and science fiction conventions across the USA and even in Europe. As we get closer to our wrap date, this website will have a new page so everyone can keep track of when/where we will be shown.
Thank you everyone for your support!
