SIGGRAPH Video Review:




    Picciotti Della Benavita

Company / Institution / Agency:

  • Bonsaininja Studio


    Bonsaininja Studio wrote, directed, and produced this music video for the Italian musician and producer AntiAnti, featuring the rapper Caparezza.

    “Picciotti Della Benavita” is a story about politics, Mafia, bribed authorities, vintage Italian cars, and pin-striped suits.

    Live-action shooting, motion-graphics effects, 3D animations, matte-painting techniques, and a lot of irony were used to depict decades of genuine Italian corruption and immorality in this action-packed gangster music video.
