STEAMPUNK Much of the visualizations of Steampunk have their origins with, among others, Walt Disney's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, including the design of the story's submarine the Nautilus, it's interiors, and the film's underwater gear; and George Pal's 1960 film The Time Machine, with the design of the time machine itself.
The Time Machine" is a 1960 science fiction film based on H. G. Wells's 1895 novel of the same name about a man from Victorian England who travels far into the future. It starred Rod Taylor and Yvette Mimieux. The film was produced by George Pál, who always wanted to make a sequel to his 1960 film, but it was not remade until 2002 when Wells' great-grandson Simon Wells directed a film with the same title. The film received an Oscar for time-lapse photographic effects showing the world changing rapidly.
