Animated "DORIAN GRAY" Adaptation Finished!

Postby VSBAUER » Tue Jul 02, 2013 7:55 am

Yay! After a year & a half of animating, my new animated adaptation of Oscar Wilde's classic, "The Picture of Dorian Gray" is done & ready to be viewed.

It relocates the familiar tale of terror to present day New York City. Young & beautiful, Dorian is thrust from his philanthropic work into a world of fame, fortune & facade when his portrait is taken by an adoring artist.

After falling in love with his own image, Dorian wishes that he could always remain as depicted in the work, while it ages (& decays) for him. His wish is granted, and his life spirals down into a series of debauched acts, each taking the shape of a new disfigurement in the portrait.

A signature Bauer twist ending caps off this modern retelling.

The film can be viewed at my blog below (via Distrify)
