Exploring Steampunk Across All Medias With ‘Clockwork Watch’
A couple of weeks back at Thought Bubble in Leeds I had the honour of meeting an extraordinary group of people who have taken some bold steps into the world of transmedia with their ongoing ever evolving Steampunk story, which is titled Clockwork Watch.
The story of Clockwork Watch is told via comics, theatre and a film is in the works.
What follows are some video interviews I did with the the various people behind this massively ambitious project.
First up is my brief interview with Yomi Ayeni, who is the creator of Clockwork Watch and the person overseeing pretty much the whole project.
Second up is my interview with the lovely Jennie Gyllblad, who did all the artwork for the Clockwork Watch comic, which pretty much tells the story to date. Jennie somehow managed to charm me into buying a copy. I think it might have been that magic head dress she was wearing.
And finally after a half hour wait on the trading floor I managed to nab a really quick interview with writer Corey Brotherson, who not only wrote the Clockwork Watch comic with Yomi, but also wrote one of the stories in Volume 2 of Barry Nugent’s Unseen Shadows anthology Comic. The deja vu was the fact that this was our second take at filming. I have conveniently misplaced the first one.
To sum up Clockwork Watch is a project, which potentially could be a launch platform for many writers and artists and holds unlimited story telling potential.
It’s fair to say that this group of people are really passionate about what they are doing and rightly so. And as someone who owns both comics and fully intends to read them over Christmas maybe when things quiet down a little. I’m 100% behind this team of individual and hope that they get all the help they seek to continue this brilliantly fun creative project and not only taken it national, but maybe even international.
