Paramount Pictures Top 100 Films by Davide Bonazzi



In 2014, Michael Armstrong, the art director of Paramount, asked Davide Bonazzi to create some illustrations to celebrate their 100th birthday.

Do you want to talk about the Paramount Pictures Top 100 Films work?

The work began as a pilot project, which would have consisted of a series of very short spots animated films that would go on to introduce classic Paramount Pictures movies, on Paramount Channel, and in the project they wanted to make posters too. The project did not go beyond this first pilot phase, but for me it was very interesting, because it was a dream job that every illustrator would like to do! I had to measure myself with some films, chosen by me from a list of more than 100 titles; I saw them again and tried to do something inspired by those films, bearing in mind that the static image I was making it should have been set in motion, thus creating an animation in a second time.
