Every week on Film Pulse, we highlight a Kickstarter project that we think you’ll really like, and deserves some support.

If you help fund any of the projects we list, send us an e-mail at, and we’ll make sure to thank you on the podcast.

This week we’d like to highlight Cowboys and Engines from director Bryn Pryor. This short film takes place in 1876 in a world of mechanical marvels and fantastic contraptions- that’s right folks, it’s a steam punk film. We had the privilege of attending a table read for this film last week and are very exited to see this come to fruition.  Be sure to click here to donate and tune in to this week’s podcast where we’ll be having a chat with the film’s director.

Cowboys & Engines is an ambitious steampunk adventure that follows Cade Ballard (Jeff Cannata), the war-weary former ambassador from the nation of Texas as he meets Guinivere Wheeler (Libby Letlow), a woman who proves to be as dangerous as she is charming. When they encounter Professor Nicholas Timéon (Walter Koenig), and learn that his temporal engine, a machine with incredible destructive power, has been stolen by would-be conqueror Dr. Clay, Cade and Guinivere set off to save San Francisco from total destruction.
