Paramount Network has an October filled with Classic Horror movies and needed to come up a way to promote them.
I worked on a graphic solution - simplifying each movie to one illustration - inspired by the minimalist movie posters and fan art. I storyboarded each and this solution was chosen
We then had fun animating them - being true to the existing colors and animation style of the Paramount Network brand, but giving each title a life of its own.
Here's the full 30 second spot, nominated for a Promax award.
