Announcement Video

This is the short announcement video we put out to advertise the project.

Robert Louis Stevenson’s 1886 novella is a classic story of a popular and sociable Doctor who seems to be connected to a man so evil and hideous just to gaze upon him makes you sick. 

Why did the bizarre and terrifying Mr. Hyde trample a young girl on the streets of London? 

Why was he so calm while he did it?

Why did Henry Jekyll, one of the most well-loved men in London, give Hyde the money to pay off the girl’s family?

And just why is Jekyll leaving all of his money to Hyde in his will?

This story – with a twist so famous most people know it already – is so hypnotic and revealing in its depiction of London and the human mind, it is still studied in schools to this day.
