Main Title Sequence for our new season of Black Dynamite!

Black Dynamite’s Season Opening Title was done byStudio Trigger (Kill La Kill, Little WItch Academia) and Sanzigen (Kill La Kill Op2/Cyborg 009) (Ultra Super Pictures). Directed by none other than big homieHIroyuki Imaishi (Kill La Kill). 

FUN PRODUCTION FACT: 10 of the 22 cuts in this sequence were hand drawn illustrations (Still images& some Key animation like the foot gas pedal). The rest is all 3D animated / toon shading (Sanzigen). Frames were removed and shot on 1s, 2s and 3s to give the impact of classic Imaishi, 2D style timing.  During my hangout in Japan, meeting with Matsuura-san, president of Sanzigen, he told me the crew had an absolute blast producing the Main Title and felt it was one of the more creatively liberating projects they’ve worked on. Imaishi felt the show was so cool because the style looked inspired by Takeshi Koike, which he later admitted was his stylistic inspiration for Dead Leaves. :-)

Black Dynamite x Trigger x Sanzigen = :-D
