The Zanuck Company

What a pleasure that was working with them, it really was, not only because of the production's thrillingly unique type but also because of the Zanuck Company's family entertainment head Rick Calabash, who's without doubt one of the most caring and adept creative executives I ever worked with. At one point in the production process, due to the time shift between L.A. and Europe, he kept his Skype all night open to make sure to be able to receive my workings real time and to provide me instantly feedback.

However, during this very time, for the simple pleasure of it, I did this speed colour sketch, spoofing one of Universal Studios' and Zanuck's most noted films, JAWS. I remember that the film poster's iconic colours and layout kind of jumped over to my wacky sketch almost by itself.
