This charming little character Marcel The Shell was a sweet little surprise that I found in my inbox this morning from a friend. After falling in love with this little shell named Marcel I was dying with laughter at the brilliant concept and the simplicity of this tiny little character. I love Marcel.
Marcel the Shell With Shoes On is a Stop Motion animated short film made by the collaborative efforts of writer/director Dean Fleischer-Camp and writer/actress Jenny Slate. The short is about Marcel, an anthropomorphic shell.
The film premiered theatrically at AFI FEST 2010 where it was awarded Best Animated Short and was an official selection of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. Enjoy! Christina XO
