(Fake) Leviathan movie trailer

Based on the steampunk series by Scott Westerfeld. – The music is called Apocolyptic by Two Steps from Hell. – A movie poster I made just for fun: jarredspekter.deviantart.com – Leviathan is the first of a trilogy exploring an alternate history of World War one in which both sides of the conflict subscribed to either better living and warfare through machines (Clankers) or genetically engineered multi-purpose animals (Darwinists). In the midst of this conflict the son of an assassinated archduke escapes onboard a massive walking war machine and a young girl impersonates a man to enter the British Air-force onboard a living airship called The Leviathan. These two unlikelies with two differing philosophies will find their paths crossing, and a secret one of them holds could shift the balance of the brewing war.

Port Babbage is an area of New Babbage, a Steampunk community in the Virtual World of Second Life (www.secondlife.com). The setting reminds the photographer of this film, Second Life’s Eddi Haskell, of how a British City would have looked in 1887, at the time of Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee, if Charles Babbage’s computer were actually built in 1831. Advances such as electrical power and manned flying machines would have certainly arrived earlier. But coal-based pollution would have tinged the sky a foggy green, ,and required light during daytime hours, just as it did in industrial cities in 1871. This video is set to the National Hymn of England, Sir William Parry’s Jerusalem.

  23. quite the contrary, I think YOU guys got the idea to make this look like a British city at the time of Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee! I just made the video and thank you for the opportunity of letting me do so!

    It reminds not of London, but of how Glasgow or Manchester might have looked if computing
    power were here earlier, and I LOVED the giant valve or vacuum tube!

    The terms “Chariots of
    Fire” inspired me to chose this music for the video.

  24. What a lovely and fitting homage to our town!…but also to the great man Sir Charles Babbage. I also am thrilled that you *got* the idea that New Babbage is the living dream of “what if” and “how a British city might have looked in 1887 if Babbage’s dream was realized” just splendid and inspiring! Thank you!
