Well it isn't truly a Steampunk movie, but I think that there are many steampunk elements in it (the inventions, the goggles, the atmosphear ...).

A short presentation :
The Academy-Award® nominated animated short-film tells the story of a lonely inventor, whose colorless existence is brightened only by dreams of the carefree bliss of his youth.

By day, he is trapped in a dehumanizing job in a joyless world. But by night, he tinkers away on a visionary invention, desperate to translate his inspiration into something meaningful.

When his invention is complete, it will change the way people see the world. But he will find that success comes at a high price, as it changes himself, as well.

You can watch it here :

Warning : don't watch it if you feel depressed  Wink

Woah, that's pretty awsome. Very haunting to say the least but it does make you think.

Julius approves. Tongue Grin

Wow, that was very powerful. I have never seen such a perfect use of New Order's - Elegia either.

That song is actually an elegy to Ian Curtis. I don't know how many of you are familiar with Joy Division/New Order, but Ian was the singer of Joy Division. He hung himself due to severe depression in 1980, and the remaining members of JD started doing a new project called New Order. Elegia is on their 3rd LP "Low Life", and it marks the point where their sound really started to distance it self from that in JD.

If you liked that song, you check out the rest of that album. There's also a song on (I believe) Brotherhood, called "All Day Long", that is my favorite NO song ever. It has this gorgeous chamber music element.
