The Narrative of Victor Karloch is a Victorian ghost story puppet short film that utilizes 30 inch tall rod puppets, traditional shadow puppetry, rotoscope and rear projection to present the adventure of Victor Karloch, an alchemist, scholar, and ghost hunter, as he battles the supernatural forces of the Unknown. In this short film (which will the first of many tales), Victor Karloch receives a journal from a colleague who is involved in a salvage operation for a series of missing sea freighters in the North Sea. In this journal, Karloch's friend describes his descent into the abysmal deep with the use of a diving bell and his encounters with the ghosts of a lost Templar Knights ship.
