Jacob Marley. Who is this man? What's his story? How did he get his chains? Will he only be remembered as a bit player in the timeless story A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens? In a world of fresh possibilities, adventure and musical story telling, Jacob Marley and a cast of wonderful new characters will come to life in a 3D animated film by Track 36 Studios... coming soon!
As an Art Director and Concept Designer on the project, it was pure joy infusing life into this wonderful tale by William Bennett. To envision a novel take on the counting house, it seemed only natural to cast the infamous space as a character within the film. The shop could then simultaneously evolve and grow with a unique personality, historical unfoldment and rich story arch during its supporting role.
Audiences will brim with excitement as the tale is celebrated through the lens of a sub textural environment inhabited and shaped by the various characters who dwell within its bellows.
