Steampunk Myths and Legends Entry: Helen Rathbone


A screenshot from our current opening scene, the smoke is yet to be animated and the character will be made darker to blend into the 2D environment better.
City painting by Jenny Rathbone (Bunnyjen)


it kept coming up with errors so posted it a few too many times… thank you for the comments ^^


costume design for the banshee, she will have wings that are being designed and modeled by Bunnyjen


That is a nice blend of styles. Also nice concepts.


Welcome to our studio… in other words, half of a student bedroom that has cleverly been converted into a green screen studio through the use of 3 double bedsheets ironed to perfection (3 hours worth of ironing in fact!!)
We had to place the camera on the bed in order to get the character in the whole frame - at least it was cosy.

Ok so its not very professional looking, but we are good at improvising!

Very interesting project… very original… I wish you the best of luck with the little time remaining… keep going :wip:


thank you! ^^ the editing is taking much longer than we anticipated, been doing it solidly for several weeks, its going to be a push! its been really fun though :slight_smile:


Our timeline is getting pretty busy! We are working on matching the lighting and colours on the actress with the background, we are also planning on going back through and increasing the contrast on the images, we really want to bring out the orange hues in the film


This is really taking shape.
I am very excited about your finished product!
Hope you make it in time! :wink:

Good Luck,

Cmdr. Pi


ok, with 10 minutes to go, at 6am… we finally admit defeat :stuck_out_tongue: we had the film finished, but for some reason our sound wasnt exporting, so we couldnt put the two together. Oh well, maybe next time, will post what we had anyway tomorrow if anyones interested, congrats to everyone who made it!


Oh no! You guys put so much work into this :frowning: Sorry you couldn’t make it. Would still like to see what you had!


Very sorry to hear, you didn’t make it… what you had so far looked pretty good.
And i absolutely agree with tyson: I would really like to see what you have so far!


Sorry to hear that… what a deception :cry:
why you don’t post the film without sounds… I know that make less finished film… well…

I hope you show us anyway the final film soon… I was really very interested to see your work… :drool:


aww thanks for the concern ^^ a bit gutting really considering ive been editing it solidly for at least 3 weeks! but it was the most fun project ive been able to work on, nice and refreshing from the mainstream topics we are given at uni so i loved doing it! your entries are all stunning anyway, i wouldnt have stood a chance ;D will post it later today :slight_smile:


oops posted that in fayes name not mine, oh well!


ok, first i wanna apologise for the quality, didnt know where to upload it other than youtube so its looking pretty awful, and its squished it, its meant to be 16:9 lol.
The story is that as shes walking through the woods she hears a horrible wailing sound from the banshee, it is based on the irish folklore, some said banshees would use silver combs to lure people in. We wanted to create a new world, and suggest that this short is just the beginning, the world has been torn apart and this is simply one of the creatures that has been unleashed.
I know its very unprofessional looking in comparison with the other entries, but im happy with it considering we had just 3 people, and limited resources. It would be a lot better with the sound too, we will work on that :slight_smile:


Héhé… not bad for sure… even if the format and the youtube quality don’t permit to really appreciate your creation… anyway, it’s very interesting and original… good vision… good mood…
…again, sorry you could’t post it in time…

…anyway, good continuation in your future films :thumbsup:
