Die Zombie Serie „Walking Dead“ wird pünktlich zu Halloween auf AMC ihre Permiere feiern. Daniel M.Kanemoto hat der auf dem Comic von Robert Kirkman basierenden TV-Serie jetzt Opening Titels beschert, die sich als Fanmade-Work auf die Original Zeichnungen von Tony Moore und Charlie Adlard beziehen und völlig unabhängig von den Produzenten der Serie entstanden sind.

Er selbst sagt dazu:

„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.“ (via Vimeo/Daniel Kanemoto)
