The Tone… (1 of 3)

I09 Article: What Does it Mean When People say your Story’s Tone is Wrong? I’ve had thoughts about this over time especially in regards to Steampunk.

Review: The Warrior’s Way

I wonder HOW I didn’t see this in the theater!? While the focus of it is a Western/Martial Arts film, there was an unmistakeable nod to Steampunk Aesthetic in the look. The look of the set was an interested choice of warm and cool. The oudoor scenes at night with a decided blue tint and the interior […]
