quietearth [Celluloid 02.16.12] scifi steampunk war



Set in an alternate 1920s where Zeppelins are gunships and "the fog" is winning the war, The Wars of Other Men contains some great shots of the blimps flying overhead but is kind of weak on the production values. To boot, this is only a short, so someone give them $$ so they can make it a proper feature!

The film is written and directed by Mike Zawacki.


Set in a 1920s-like world at war, "The Wars of Other Men" tells the story of a nameless Lieutenant fighting for an army on the verge of defeat. The enemy has begun to dominate the battlefield with their new chemical super weapon, known only as "the Fog." When his superiors learn the location of the facility that manufactures the Fog, the Lieutenant is ordered to lead a squad through the war torn city to capture the scientist responsible for its creation... at a terrible cost to soldier and civilian alike. With the lives of his men and the fate of the war hanging in the balance the Lieutenant must make a choice -- will he be a good soldier or will he be a good man?

Small squad combat tactics seemed to suck a bit... "Let us all stand together in the open... and stop..."

Other than that... could be interesting.

+1 with USERNAME. Focus on the story, the acting, and especially costuming and "the look." SFX are not what Steamopunk is about.
