Winds of Nostalgio is a 2010 sci-fi/fantasy film based on the video game from Red Entertainment. Emma Watson directs and stars in this film as the lead character, Eddie Brown, who travels the world in search of his father. Other main cast members include Skandar Keynes as street urchin Pad, Kay Panabaker as young witch Melody, Rupert Grint as the mysterious Fiona, and Nick Nolte as Gilbert Brown, who went missing after a run-in with the Cabal. The entirety of the film was shot in SlayerVision 3-D, a videotape system that synchronizes both tapes at the same time with the push of any button on the camera and is compatible with a computer program written by Emma herself. All scenes were shot on location.
It is the age of the airship.
At the end of the 19th century, in a place much like our own, the bold and courageous loaded their dreams upon these flying machines and ventured out into the skies above.
One such adventurer was known around the world for his audacity and daring. The legendary Gilbert Brown was the most famous explorer in all of England. However, tempting fate one too many times, he crossed paths with a mysterious organization known as the Cabal and was never seen again.
Years later Eddie, Gilbert's son, boards the one thing his father left behind: his airship, the Maverick.
Leaving the only place he's ever known, Eddie departs London in search of his missing father and embarks on an adventure of his own...
