The Mysterious Geographic Explorations of Jasper Morello is the first of three short films and a planned feature film set in the steampunk world of Gothia - a Victorian mechanical floating archipelago of densely overlapping scaffolding, floating dirigibles, masses of cogs, iron trusses, fine lacework, elaborate mechanical contraptions and pronounced noses.

Set in a world of iron dirigibles and steam powered computers, this gothic horror mystery tells the story of Jasper Morello, a disgraced aerial navigator who flees his Plague-ridden home on a desperate voyage to redeem himself. The chance discovery of an abandoned dirigible leads Jasper through unchartered waters to an island on which lives a terrifying creature that may be the cure for the Plague. The journey back to civilization is filled with horrors but in a shocking climax, Jasper discovers that the greatest horror of all lies within man himself.
