Film Review from Land of Nerds

Land of the Nerds

Moon Sedai wrote a wonderful review of Frankenstein’s Monster. In praise of the film she wrote:

“The focus of this film is, at the heart, the story, not the blood, gore, and tech. The film is beautifully done despite the low budget.”

Strong words of praise were also given to Matt Risoldi (Monster) and  the cinematography(Slava Vlad). But we won’t spoil that here.

Shout out from Houston Press

“There’ll also be a screening of Judith B. Shields’s steampunk reimagining of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. “How we are making the film unique is a light steampunk twist: What if instead of electricity, Victor Frankenstein reanimated the monster by steam?” said Shields. “Victor Frankenstein was known for studying all sciences, so it is not too far of a leap to have him experiment with steam. Our monster actually smokes.”

Frankenstein’s Monster – An Indie Steampunk Film–A fantastic interview of Judith B. Shields by Author and Blogger Maeve Alpin as They Ride on an Airship Discussing the Project and Steampunk

“Our Steampunk is expressed through the art—for starters we used a lot of STEAM! The monster is Steam-powered. He smokes! It is simple. Steampunk is expressed in the camera angle choices. The finished look of the film has a darkened edge and is slightly desaturated—to remind the audience of an old photograph.  Word choices in the script, Edwardian costumes, unique props built by those in our Texas Steampunk community. This is our Steampunk.”

Judith B. Shields’ Interview with Indie-Loop

A closer look at microbudget filmmaking.

IL: You are one of the special guest panelists at this year’s Comicpalooza (2013) discussing how to make an independent film on a budget. Great topic since many indie-artists/film makers struggle with the financial aspect in launching their projects. What advice can you give indie-artists dealing with this dilemma?”
