Stumble Findings: The Mysterious Geographic Explorations of Jasper Morello

All I can say about this film series is that it is both stunning and hauntingly beautiful, especially if you are a fan of China Mieville's books, the short game Loondon,  or Gothic/Victorian steampunk in general.

Nominated for and winner of numerous awards, the first video in this series follows Jasper Morello, a royal navigator who has just been called back to pilot a ship after three months of being grounded. I won't spoil much more of the plot (wikipedia does a great job of that, anyway, if you really don't feel like watching this gorgeous piece of animation) so you can watch the video for free here:

  19. I'm glad so many of you have liked this post! I have come across a few other interesting shorts--not necessarily steampunk, however--so I will be posting those as I remember them.

    Also, I will add a link to the project's main site, where you can order the DVDs!
