The Brothers Grimm

Finn Brandt explains: "By creating a range of watercolour paintings with shapes and textures hinting at enchanted forests and mystical creatures, we pull the audience into the movie, building up anticipation without letting the cat out of the bag".

All artwork was created traditionally, but scanned and manipulated digitally. This process allowed maximum control over timing and incorporation of additional animated elements such a 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.
