This is OTP creative director David Braun with a message about a very special movie I was lucky enough to join the animation team on with some of our best friends and collaborators. Writer/director Dean Fleischer-Camp and animation director Kirsten Lepore have crafted a miniature masterpiece worth its weight in sand dollars premiering this Friday via A24.
The kindness and positivity Dean & Kirsten brought to the screen feels like an ice cold drink of water after being lost in the desert, and I believe that everyone from kids to grandparents to aging crust punks will find something to love about Marcel (produced by our great friends the Chiodo Bros).
Now let’s all get out there and help give this film a shell-deserved success at the box office this weekend! You have to sea it to believe it.
