2014 was, by most accounts, a pretty rad year for the ladies in the crowd. Politically, we’ve got more woman than ever before in Congress (100 to be exact), the first African-American Republican Congresswoman,  and a blatant smack down of  extreme anti-abortion laws. Women have thoroughly flexed their social media muscles, creating trending hashtags like #YesAllWomen, #WhyIStayed and #WhyILeft that united women and allies against violence, misogyny ... Read More
The Sundance Institute has collaborated with Todd Oldham on a line of limited-edition merchandise available for pre-order. The products range from t-shirts to dinner plates to stickers and buttons and patches, all designed by well-known, Sundance-friendly artists. Seriously, there is so much good stuff here that narrowing it down to only six products was difficult. Who knew that, on top of being a hilarious and amazingly talented actress, Jenny Slate is also a ... Read More
  The last time we saw our little friend he was talking about "treats and snoozin', snoozin' and treats" in "Marcel the Shell With Shoes On Two." That was three years ago! Can you believe it? Fortunately for fans, Jenny Slate and her husband Dean Fleischer-Camp have graciously made a new video in celebration of their new book Marcel the Shell: The Most Surprised I've Ever Been (click through to see an exclusive spread from the book! buy it ...

There have been few events in my life that have been pivotal enough for me to remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when they happened. One of them is the first time I saw “Marcel the Shell with Shoes On." I was in the library at school, I was supposed to be studying, and I laughed loudly enough to irritate the people at the table next to me. Over the years, the short film has grown to mean so much to me that I even got a tattoo of Marcel. The ... Read More
Do you love Marcel the Shell, the adorable stop motion animated talking shell? Have you missed him since his last video? Good news!

"Marcel The Shell With Shoes On" first appeared in 2010 thanks to writer/comedian/actress Jenny Slate, who voiced the character, and her husband, writer/director Dean ... Read More
You may remember our post about a kickstarter for the "Obvious Child" short released a few years ago. Well, thanks to many generous folks and the talented work of Gillian Robespierre, along with her friends Anna Bean (a beloved ex-BUST intern!) and Karen Maine, we finally get to see a subversive comedy about laughing at love, life, and abortion!  Gillian Robespierre, Bean and Maine came up with the story through their frustration with limited ...

Because  it's Friday, and women ARE funny, and Twitter's cool and everybody's doing it! @unfoRETTAble You know that thing where you buy the boxed set of a TV show and then watch it all in a row? Retta basically does that thing professionally, and then tweets about it (when she's not busy killing it as Donna Meagle on Parks & Recreation). From The Mindy Project to Homeland and everything (literally everything) in between, Retta is very ... Read More
Last year, comedian Jenny Slate and director Dean Fleischer-Camp introduced us to the adorable Marcel The Shell with Shoes On and gave us a little insight into the life of an average mollusk. We learned that lentils make good hats, strands of hair can be used for basically everything and that it isn’t so easy being a little shell. Things sure have changed since the last time we heard from our favorite shell in pink sneaks though. First of all, ... Read More
Well, I was so busy running around to screenings that I did not have time to post every day like planned, so here are my 3 days squished into one report. Sundance is a great festival, it's filled with people passionate about telling stories, and I met so many smart and creative folks, it really was worth driving in a blizzard and white knuckling it down a mountain to be here (more on that later! Saturday started off with an invite to see the premiere of a ... Read More
What’s that you say? You need something to cheer you up? Thursday is a bore because it’s almost Friday but not quite Friday and you’re having a hard time staying awake enough to even make it to Friday? Think your life is rough? Well think again.This is Marcel. Marcel is a shell. Marcel wears shoes and seems somewhat gender-ambiguous. Marcel ate some cheese once, but it was probably a bad idea. Marcel has to walk on phones to talk on them. Marcel ... Read More
