Watch: ‘The Astounding Adventures of Victoria Vanderbelt’ is Delightful DIY Steampunk

By  · Published on July 24th, 2012

Why Watch? Who’s Victoria Vanderbelt? She’s a steampunk bounty hunter in the old west, making arrests with the help of her copper-plated robo-baby.

That’s right. Robo-baby.

The style of Ian Pugh’s short is definitely DIY, with cheap props and kitschy set dressing to spare, but it’s also a delight. It’s a simple series of skits sewn together with a patchwork of green screening and stop-motion that’s old timey and a lot of fun.

What will it cost? Only 3 minutes.
