Aurora the Film

The Steam-powered Airship Aurora

South Australian indie filmmakers Urtext have just released the live-action steampunk movie Aurora after some 3 1/2 years in the making.

Shot in and around the Adelaide area, Aurora tells the story of an airship crew in a determined quest to liberate the victims of ruthless slavers. The finished film belies its impressively small budget of $1800, using eight locations, over 80 costumed extras and 375 VFX shots: a significant undertaking in independent film making.

Aurora premièred on the 1st of August to over 300 people at the Piccadilly cinema in North Adelaide, and the full 30 minute, widescreen film can now be viewed online at
