Tucson Film and Music Festival: 2014 Spaghetti Western Intro
I’ve always loved the look and feel of the classic 1960’s Spaghetti Western credit sequences. With so many films released within the genre there are of course a number of different styles at play, but when taken as a whole I think that the overall vibe and highly creative motion graphics work is hard to top.
With all of that in mind, this was an intro that I directed and animated for the 2014 Tucson Film and Music Fest as a tribute to the general Spaghetti Western form. Seen here are a number of animated elements based on the original poster art, and the song you’re hearing is entitled “El Chumbanchero”, courtesy of Portland, Oregon’s fabulous Audios Amigos.
