Jonathon Rayner-Burt is the director of a Steampunk/sci-fi short film project called Stella 459 (www.stella459.com).
The teaser trailer for this this is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vOxv4-eJ1cY
With casting well underway, Stella 459 plans to shoot this in November of this year. As the project did not qualify for public funding, they are hitting the fundraising trail hard in order to raise the capital required for props, wardrobe and set construction.
In Auckland on September 1st Stella 459 are running a Steampunk themed High Tea event at the historic Ferndale House to help with this.
