With the 20th anniversary approaching of Director Kyle Roberts’ favorite cartoon growing up, he wanted to see if his team could recreate the 1992 X-Men cartoon animated intro using action figures and stop motion! With over 4,000 individual pictures taken, Roberts spent two months rotoscoping and animating all of the special effects.
Art director Nathan Poppe drew over 60 background images used in this project with his “doodle” style rad artwork. Colin Nance and Zach Zellar recreated the original theme from scratch and you can download on Colin’s sound cloud.
