Steampunk Wednesdays #5 – Airlords of Airia (2013)


A very impressive German independent short, Airlords of Airia blends Steampunk with traditional fantasy and 1930s art deco stylings. Set in a post-apocalyptic world (Earth?) extensive flooding has forced man to take command of the skies. Hinting at a world of airlords, rebels, smugglers and empires, this reminds me of a 1930s serial episode like Flash Gordon or Buck Rogers. It also works as a sort of trailer for what could become a feature film.

The project is ongoing with the hope of releasing more shorts or even a feature film. It is crowdfunded and you can visit their website here.
