The X-Men come to life in the latest stop-motion animated short from Kyle Roberts.
Roberts, a NewsOK videographer and Planet 46 Comics Show co-host, has created stop-motions featuring the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, James Bond, Spider-Man and more. Full disclosure, I did a little creative consulting for this one.
Here’s how Reckless Abandonment describes the video on YouTube:
After the release of the TMNT stop motion tribute, the team at Reckless Abandonment Pictures are back at it again!
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 the song for free at:
“Posthuman” actress Alex Harris stars in the short.
