Dean Fleischer Camp is a writer, director, editor and New York Times-bestselling author. Since directing internet sensation MARCEL THE SHELL WITH SHOES ON in 2010, Camp's work in film and television has been profiled in virtually every major American media outlet. His first feature film, the experimental documentary FRAUD (2018), was released to widespread controversy and acclaim after fighting broke out among attendees at its HotDocs world premiere. Described as a "brilliantly provocative"(Filmmaker) and "exhilarating"(Sight+Sound) "masterwork"(IDA's Documentary Magazine) that "pushes the boundaries of documentary"(Variety), the film has since developed a cult following and is routinely used in educational settings to promote media literacy. His first narrative feature film, 2022's MARCEL THE SHELL WITH SHOES ON, starring Jenny Slate, Isabella Rossellini, and Lesley Stahl, will mark distributor A24's first animated film and its first family film.
