Great work by my good friend Michael Velasquez. Here’s what he had to say about making this sequence, which incorporates some iconic scenes from the actors’ careers:
An opening title sequence I created for Awesome Asian Bad Guys. Achieved by a combination of tedious rotoscoping and keyframe animation. I had two assistants doing additional rotoscoping bail on me without warning during this project, one of them the day before it was to be delivered. I’m extremely proud of the end result but I will likely be avoiding all projects that call for rotoscoping from now on. It was, of course, all worth it to meet several childhood idols of mine from the cast.
