In addition to The 86th Academy Awards Show Package and Nominee Posters, Mill+ had the honor of designing this year’s In Memoriam sequence. The sequence commemorates the fallen film stars, directors, writers and Academy members, making it one of the most beloved and controversial segments of the broadcast.
Creative directors Manija Emran and Henry Hobson led the Mill+ team out of our LA studio for the project. Emran explained, “For this sequence, we wanted to showcase an emotional journey with a pace and rhythm that would carry us from one memory to the next. We chose ink as our medium, which allowed for a delicate aesthetic as well as creating fluent and organic transitions.”
