Below you can checkout the Walking Dead Intro video and in fact I want you to watch it before you read anymore of what I have to say. Its a piece of audio video mastery that will impress the hell out of you. Watch it first then read on.
So now that you have watched the video here is the real kicker. Its not real! Its actually a fan made video that is clearly so damn good if you did not know, you would think it was the real deal. The creator Daniel Kanemoto writes;
My favorite “exclusive” from this year’s Comic-Con was a beautiful painting by legendary artist Drew Struzan, featuring a horde of zombies from THE WALKING DEAD. Frank Darabont is adapting the apocalyptic Image Comics book created by Robert Kirkman, and man, it looks really, really great.
As I was admiring Struzan’s work of art, I wondered what the opening titles to this terrifying new television show might look like… so I animated a spec title sequence using artwork ripped from the pages of the comic, originally illustrated by Charlie Adlard and Tony Moore.
Just so there’s no confusion, I’m not affiliated with the production in any way — I’m simply a huge fan of both Frank Darabont and Robert Kirkman, and this is my attempt at creating a cinematic introduction to one of the all time great “continuing stories of survival horror.”
Clearly Daniel has some serious talents and should begin work immediately on an animated zombie film if he has not already. Props to ShootfortheHead for the find!
