A little over a month ago I posted a video from Beakus featuring an animated short for the new Sky series “Penny Dreadful” on the book “Frankenstein“. The video below is the second installment and the focus this time around is the book “Dracula” Narrated by Matthew Sweet (not the musician). Sweet takes us on an insightful journey through the history of the book, hidden meanings, and glimpse at how Dracula became an iconic figure in contemporary pop culture. Once again the animation is stylistically wonderful interweaving animation with brief segments of live action footage “Penny Dreadful” is a major drama series on Sky created by John Logan and starring Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton, Eva Green and Billie Piper.
I somehow missed the third installment for “Dorian Gray” which is equally as good as the first two.
