This was the first title we designed for Terry Gilliam. Little did we know it would be the beginning of many creative colaborations.
For "The Brothers Grimm" we created a range of watercolour paintings with shapes and textures hinting at enchanted forests and mystical creatures, to pull the
audience into the movie, building up anticipation without letting the cat out of the bag. All artwork was created traditionally, scanned and imported into our 2D and 3D software. This process allowed maximum control over timing and incorporation of additional animated elements such a misty version of the evil queen, flying ravens and grabbing tree hands.
Gilliam was keen to exploit Finn's calligraphy expertise to produce a distinctive and original logo influenced by italian, german and french penmanship. Brandt Animation produced many other elements for the movie, including handwritten captions and the film's end titles.
