An update to last years 31 Days of Oscar spot produced by Fresh Paint for TCM, a little late after award season I know, but still one of the most creative executions of what is essentially just a collection of clips I’ve seen.
While there isn’t an Oscar category for title design yet (the proposal was rejected in 1999) it shouldn’t stop us from looking at the Academy’s own opening credits.
Personally I think TCM’s creative and mesmerising take on the movie montage would have served as a much more eloquent introduction to the 80th Academy Awards.
The 80th Academy Awards is scheduled for the 24th of February, and to celebrate these eight decades of excellence in cinema Turner Classic Movies is holding 31 days of Oscar programming across its network.
Produced by Fresh Paint, this stunning promo melds classic moments from movie history with live action and animation to create a truly creative and refreshing take on the old programming song-and-dance.
The simple yet beautiful music composition is incredibly effective and transcends the varied movie genres represented in this stunning piece of television promotion.
