Enter John and his extraordinary artwork.
Somehow, John was able to capture the emotion of an entire movie in a single image. His exquisite posters became the anchors of our marketing campaigns. They didn't just inspire people to attend these films, they inspired us to promote them.

There was a reason why 'Hunchback of Notre Dame' became a big success. It's because of the images that were produced, and a lot of those were John Alvin's paintings.
