The twin brothers Gaëtan and Paul Brizzi are animators, painters and illustrators from Paris. They were born into an Italian family, and raised in Paris, where they studied at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Arts Decoratifs.
The brothers began their studio Brizzi Films in 1986 and worked on the 'Babar' TV series and the film 'Babar: The Movie' (1989), starring the little elephant created by Jean De Brunhoff. They sold their studio to The Walt Disney Studio in 1989, and subsequently worked as unit producers on several Disney TV shows and films, including 'DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp' (1990) and 'A Goofy Movie' (1995).
They left Disney in 2001 and have since worked as storyboard artists on 'Enchanted' (2007), the Tim Burton-produced '9' (2009) and 'Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet' (2014), and also on more personal projects. One of these projects is the comic book 'La Cavale du Dr Destouches' (Futuropolis, 2015), which they made in collaboration with Christophe Malavoy.
