Behind the scenes of the old school HBO intro

This is a fascinating look into the old school way of creating elaborate title sequences. Now mind you, I love digital cinema. But I can’t resist falling in love with this problem-solving animation technique. A great example is that light thingee used to create the inside of the HBO bronze structure. Brilliant, it is engineering and filmmaking melded into one.

The Running Man – by Yoshiaki Kawajiri

The Running Man - by Yoshiaki Kawajiri

I miss this kind of animation. There is always a touch of madness. In this case, madness is everywhere. It is cathartic, like an excursion to all of potential rage possible within a being. Don’t miss this classic, a mix between sci-fi noir (Blade Runner-like) and Akira.

Watch Part one & two.
