Jasper Morello, Caledonian

There are always gems hiding out in the Aether, and I have been fortunate enough to discover  a real corker this week. At it’s best, the Aether is the perfect showcase for creativity and cleverness which may not have another outlet or commercial popularity. Such is the case for the curious and fantastical world of Jasper Morello.

A steampunk animation that has existed quietly since 2005,  The Mysterious Explorations of Jasper Morello came to my attention a few days ago and since then I cannot get it’s images, or the tone of the piece out of my head. The City of Gothia is simply incredible.  Elegiac, dark, artistic and fascinating, this is a film that Caledon MUST see.

This is what the film has to say for itself…

Set in a world of iron dirigibles and steam powered computers, this gothic horror mystery tells the story of Jasper Morello, a disgraced aerial navigator who flees his Plague-ridden home on a desperate voyage to redeem himself. The chance discovery of an abandoned dirigible leads Jasper through unchartered waters to an island on which lives a terrifying creature that may be the cure for the Plague. The journey back to civilization is filled with horrors but in a shocking climax, Jasper discovers that the greatest horror of all lies within man himself.

Now available on DVD, it is also available on YouTube.
