This fan-made title sequence by writer/director Daniel Kanemoto for the upcoming live-action television adaptation of Robert Kirkman’s comic book series, The Walking Dead, is so awesome that AMC should just pay him for it. Kanemoto actually deconstructed his own copies of the comics and used the artwork by Charlie Adlard and Tony Moore to compose the opening sequence.
Lost’s creator Damon Lindelof tweeted:
“We are arriving at that unique moment in time where the term ‘fan-made’ becomes moot. This is extraordinary.”
