Information technology has become a ubiquitous presence. By visualizing the processes that underlie our interactions with this technology we can trace what happens to the information we feed into the network.
This isn’t your average Make-A-Wish foundation. Step into an American subculture, where hunting dreams come true for boys and girls deprived of a typical childhood.
When Make-A-Wish wouldn’t grant Matthew Pattison his dream of hunting a moose, his mother Tina took matters into her own hands. Ten years later she finds herself at the helm of one of the most popular wish granting foundations in America, Hunt of a Lifetime.
Looking deeper than the inevitable controversy stirred by the film’s topic, THE HARVEST is a chronicle of human struggle and the ways we cope with death. The film tracks the success of Hunt of a Lifetime and three wish recipients facing the uncertainty of life, the untimely loss of innocence, and the struggle to provide for one’s own. Follow Tyler, Arianna, and Casey as they brave the greatest challenge in their life: hunting and killing the animal of their dreams.
"We are arriving at that unique moment in time where the
term "fan-made" becomes moot. This is extraordinary."
- Damon Lindelof, Executive Producer, LOST
"Kudos to Daniel Kanemoto for his terrific fan version of
THE WALKING DEAD opening titles -- they rock big time!"
- Gale Anne Hurd, Producer, THE TERMINATOR, ALIENS, THE ABYSS, THE WALKING DEAD
My favorite "exclusive" from the 2009 Comic-Con convention was a beautiful painting by legendary artist Drew Struzan, featuring a horde of zombies from THE WALKING DEAD. Frank Darabont is adapting the apocalyptic Image Comics book created by Robert Kirkman, and man, it looks really, really great.
As I was admiring Struzan's work of art, I wondered what the opening titles to this terrifying new television show might look like... so I animated a spec title sequence using artwork ripped from the pages of the comic, originally illustrated by Charlie Adlard and Tony Moore.
Just so there's no confusion, I'm not affiliated with the production in any way -- I'm simply a huge fan of both Frank Darabont and Robert Kirkman, and this is my attempt at creating a cinematic introduction to one of the all time great "continuing stories of survival horror."
THE WALKING DEAD premiered on October 31st, 2009 on AMC and is currently the highest rated basic cable series of all time.
