2. What is The World Of Steam?
The World of Steam is a new Webseries that sets out to explore the deep recesses of a Steampunk world. Drama, Comedy, Horror, Science Fiction and Fantasy are all explored against the backdrop of a futuristic Victorian Age.
We’ve loved Steampunk for years: Jules Verne, HG Wells, HP Lovecraft, Neal Stephenson, China Mieville, GD Falksen - we could go on and on - but we weren’t seeing the worlds they described in their writing portrayed on screen. So we decided to create The World of Steam.
How to show a world so vast with so many stories? By following in the footsteps of our heroes and making a new anthology series. An anthology series like The Twilight Zone, Amazing Stories, Tales From the Darkside, or Jim Henson’s Storyteller. We felt that when looking at this incredible Steampunk universe, the best way to approach it would be by peering through the keyhole of our existence into the strange new world on the other side.
We’ve envisioned a place with Jules Verne’s technology and Jane Austen’s dialogue. A world with Charlotte Bronte’s rules and Lovecraft’s horror. A place where mad scientists, corseted heroines and bold adventurers could make their way, bringing you truly unforgettable characters, beautiful stories, and vistas like you’ve never seen.
