The Childhood Wonder Of A Giant Robotic Squid In "The Anachronism"

Illustration for article titled The Childhood Wonder Of A Giant Robotic Squid In The Anachronism

Written and directed by Matthew Gordon Long, The Anachronism is short steampunk film which about two young children on a science expedition on a beautiful sunny day. Then they discover Septopus, a 14-foot robotic squid. We've got the full film.


At first, they can't identify what it is but curiosity gets the better of them and after a bit of poking, the giant skid reacts and the events that follow unfold a mystery. What is it? How did it get there? You'll have to watch to find out.

The film premiered online this weekend to coincide with a steam punk even that took place on Saturday in Vancouver where the film make its debut. Wish I'd been there to see it on the big screen!

This was brilliant. I hope they continue the story, but like so much Steampunk, I suspect that the mood's the thing, rather than telling a coherent story. Still, one might dream, mightn't one?
