Classic X-Men Intro In Stop Motion

After over 4,000 individual photos, Reckless Abandonment Pictures director, Kyle Roberts, spent two months rotoscoping and animating all of the special effects. “I absolutely loved working on the project, to be able to work on something this long… yo’ve gotta love it! I hope it brings back some good memories for the viewers and they enjoy it as much as we did creating it!”

Rejected Pitches: The vast majority of movie pitches are rejected. Even movies that we know and love–or sort of love–were most likely rejected at some point, too. This is a webseries about the movie executives who rejected those pitches.
