The Hand of the Masters: A Steampunk Version of The French Revolution

La Main des Maîtres (The Hand of the Masters) is a five-minute animated short film by three students from the French Georges Méliès School: Vivien Chauvet, Adrien Toupet and Clément Delatre.  The film won the 2009 Strasbourg International Film Festival (France) Best Animation Award.  It takes graphic inspiration from early 20th century’s Art Nouveau and Victorian styles, and from those influences, everything went to Steampunk.  The film tells the story of working class people and their struggles during the industrial revolution.  In this Steampunk version of the French Revolution, Chari and Ico, two young members of the working class, try to give meaning to their existences.
