"DIRIGIBLE DAYS" MIXES STEAMPUNK WITH CTHULHU MYTHOS
ST. LOUIS, August 7, 2012 - Independent film company Day 304 Productions is developing a new addition to the world of steampunk. Dirigible Days is a mini web series that follows the crew of the airship S.S. Beatrix as they transport a shady lawman and his dangerous prisoner from the Cult of Cthulhu.
Anthony Daniels (Star Wars) provides the show’s opening narration, and California-based steampunk band, Vernian Process, has composed the theme music. St. Louis band The Root Diggers will also supply music for the show. Author and “unofficial face of steampunk”, G.D. Falksen, plays a small role in the series. Dirigible Days is being produced on a meager $4,000 budget raised through a successful Kickstarter campaign.
Dirigible Days will consist of five 10 minute long web episodes. The adventure takes place in an alternate reality nearly 1,000 years after a catastrophe transformed the surface of Earth and raised floating islands launching a new age of exploration and colonization. The crew of the Beatrix includes comedic engineer Hooper, mute pilot Josie, and gun-arm toting Captain Santiago Dunbar.
