Dieselpunks

Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

Am currently in pre-production for a series of short dieselpunk films set in 1943 - the Great War has raged for 29 years.

If you're interested, come and join the group for it and see it come to life (along with more shots from the photoshoot)

Hopefully it'll be right up your alley!

I love the look of it. You're doing a great job!

I'm not too sure about the "Biohazard" subtitle though. That's what the wildly popular "Resident Evil" series is known as outside the states, so there might be confusion if you try to shop this around.
Didn't realise that, in the UK we know it as Resident Evil too - must be for the non-English speaking market that they renamed it Biohazard.

I may have to go back to the original title for the first short film "Bio : Agent Unknown"
Due to Facebook being a pain when it comes to groups, we now have a Page instead :(

Alternate history is updated, concept photos (part 1) are now uploaded.

Second concept shoot is tomorrow - troopers, guns and the first proto body armour for the shoot.

Page for original photos and for the new ones (probably tuesday they'll be up) is www.facebook.com/weirdwar
So cool. I'll keep an eye on you :)
I just "liked" your FB page. I'm looking forward to your final product.
Judging from wikipedia, it appears that "Resident Evil" is known as "Biohazard" only in Japan, perhaps a few other countries.
This looks pretty cool - will be watching :)

Fresh concept stills are up for the grunts!

 

Come visit us!

:o I checked out the facebook page of this for the first time. Wow, it looks really great.

Is this going to be a movie? Where are your replicas from?

(I noticed in some of the shots that people not appearing to be shooting held their fingers on their triggers. Its a no-no!)

It's very hard to get non-soldiers to keep their fingers off triggers. I tried beating them without results.

 

The weapon replicas (the Sten mk5, Browning hi-power and Webley .38) are borrowed from a WW2 re-enactment group, the rifles are original WW2 training rifles that have been butchered and modified - they were bought from a local militaria place in Cardiff. The uniforms are mostly WW2 originals with some modifications, mostly bought on Ebay. The webbing is based on the 1870 Slade Wallis pattern, but has been made from scratch.

 

Eventually will be made into a short film, once everyone is fit and healthy again - we have a snapped achilled tendon, back problems and flu plagueing the crew at the moment.

Out here in the Netherlands, we've got the Resident Evil series, too.. Could it be that the Resident Evil franchise is known in just Asia as 'Biohazard'?

 

Anyway, those new trooper shots look great! I like the fact that you used the Finnish gas masks with the big noses (I've got one myself, you see), and the badges on the soldiers' shoulders.
