For the new Sky eries “Penny Dreadful” Beakus director Gergely Wootsch has created an animated short that features some really nice animation that takes inspiration from the origin ofMarry Shelly’s 1818 novel “Frankenstein”. The animation is dark, atmospheric, and captures the mood of the book. Matthew Sweet’s narration guides the viewer through the back story of the book, it’s origin, and aspects of the monster that many who haven’t read the book, probably don’t know. “Penny Dreadful” is a major drama series on Sky created by John Logan and starring Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton, Eva Green and Billie Piper. The animation was released as an exclusive on The Guardian.
