THE WALKING DEAD opening credits

Of all the great things that have happened in cinemas this year, none of them have made me anywhere near as excited as the prospect of the Walking Dead TV series. Based on the graphic novel series of the same name, it premieres in America on Halloween night and we should see it on FX a couple of weeks later. So far there's been a Comic-con teaser trailer released that explained the basic set up of the show (Zombies are eating people), but then this juicy little video found its way onto the net yesterday.

Surprisingly, this video is NOT real, and is just the work of a fantastically gifted animator. Now, I've not seen the real opening credits yet, but if I were the producers of the show, I'd ditch whatever I had lined up as an opening sequence and adopt this immediately. It may just be a fan video, but it's of such a high quality that I thought it must be the real deal as soon as I saw it. It's appreciative of the source material and style of animation, and tells you everything you need to know about the show in under a minute.
