The Walking Dead Fan-Made Intro

Seeing as how this is a zombie-themed blog, I thought you might like a zombie post.

For those of you who haven't heard, AMC is set to air a series based on Robert Kirkman's comic "The Walking Dead". The comic itself is spectacular, and I have astronomically high hopes for the tv show. With AMC's track record (Mad Men, Rubicon, Breaking Bad... I'm choosing to ignore The Prisoner mini series) and with the fact that Frank Darabont (basically every worthwhile Stephen King adaptation) is directing, all signs point to awesome. There is a long trailer available online from this past Comic Con, which I'll let you hunt down, but the reason I'm posting is for an intro to the new series.

It isn't even the actual opening sequence for the series, it's fan made. Check it:

THE WALKING DEAD "Opening Titles" from Daniel Kanemoto on Vimeo.



This video was made by Daniel M. Kanemoto using panels from the comic. I can't stop watching it. I have a hard time believing the actual show's intro will be this good, maybe AMC will just pay Mr. Kanemoto to use this one.

In any case, I cannot wait for the premiere of The Walking Dead, naturally airing on Oct. 31.
