From the creator:
To execute the opening, the producers turned to UK outfit Shynola. Channeling their inner wrestlers for the project, the simple concept used by the studio disguises the complex techniques required to bring it to life. Rotoscoped footage of actual wrestlers gives the neon figures a vibrancy and realism that traditional animation could never hope to match, while graphic trails and geometric flourishes evoke motion design trends specific to the time period. Paired with Patty Smyth’s triumphant rock ballad “The Warrior” and the result is both a gleeful throwback to a bygone era of wrestling and a celebration of the colourful personalities that made 1980s sports entertainment so much fun.
Executive Producers: Liz Flahive, Carly Mensch
