The Deadliest Game - steampunk space adventures!

For those who like their space adventure both steamy and retro, the future is looking positively marvellous! 

Remember Dr Grordbort's Infallible Aether Oscillators, and the excellent infomercials from my previous post?  Well, now you can see them in action in this amazing short film, featuring Lord Broadforce, his batman Caruthers, and reporter Ms Millicent Middlesworth as they venture forth on a 'scientific expedition' for His Majesty's Society for the Study of Off-World Species.

Based on the sci-fi world of Dr Grordbort created by writer and artist Greg Broadmore from Weta Workshop, and written by Nick Ward, the live action/CGI film was created by 11 students at the Media Design School over 22 weeks under the direction of 3D animation program leader James Cunningham.

The Deadliest Game follows Lord Broadforce, hero of the 'skirmish' on Phobos and the Venusian Wars where he personally 'bagged' 20,000 Venusian doomsquad troopers (or unarmed local villagers, depending on your viewpoint), as he rides into the wilderness collecting trophies for the Society, where these rare species will be preserved forever as wall-mounts...

See the film on line at Vimeo, or below.
