2021 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Dean Fleischer-Camp’s Marcel the Shell

2021 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Dean Fleischer-Camp’s Marcel the Shell

A stop-motion animated short film that took on a life of its own and snowballed into all sorts of creative items after Marcel the Shell with Shoes On was introduced to Sundance auds in 2011. We can now add a feature film to the mix. Currently in post-production and with a truncated title Marcel the Shell, the voice cast includes Isabella Rossellini and of course creative collab in Jenny Slate. The project that put Dean Fleischer-Camp on our map was 2016’s Fraud – an experimental, trippy journey into home movies from one family’s Youtube channel that you absolutely need to put in your viewing list.

Gist: This is about an anthropomorphic seashell outfitted with a single googly eye and a pair of miniature shoes.

Production Co./Producers: Elisabeth Holm.
