Jenny Slate & Dean Fleisher-Camp on "Marcel the Shell"
The tiny shell with shoes and a big heart is transitioning from online sensation to picture book character. Saturday Night Live Alum Jenny Slate and Director and Animator Dean Fleisher-Camp joined us to talk about their new Marcel book -- Marcel the Shell With Shoes On: Things About Me.
From wearing a lentil as a hat to hang-gliding on a Dorito, Marcel is able to find magic in the everyday. He may be small, but he knows he has a lot of good qualities. He may not be able to lift anything by himself, but when he needs help, he calls upon his family. He may never be able own a real dog . . . but he has a pretty awesome imagination.
Jenny , the voice of Marcel, is an alum of Saturday Night Live and plays Stella on HBO's Bored to Death. Dean is a writer, director, and animator whose work has screened at film festivals around the world.
