Title: The Elephantman – The Animated Series
Role: Creative development, direction and production
Created by Henry White and Andy Siddons, ‘The Elephant Man – The Animated Series‘ follows the adventures of John Merrick through a rather surreal-take of the great Victorian era.
Gone is the gloomy atmosphere that many will remember from David Lynch’s 1980′s movie in favour of a Victorian England that is buzzing with excitement and possibilities.
With child-like innocence and an eagerness to see the world, John, companied by father figure Doc. Treves and medical experiment Charles (A devious talking monkey) we see the Victorian world of society struggles and industrial inventions from a new perspective.
