House of Cards Gets a Walking Dead Style Intro

House of Cards (The Walking Dead Intro) from Drew Geraci (District 7 Media) on Vimeo.

House of Cards is now live on Netflix, and all you folks can spend the weekend watching it by yourself or with loved ones, and then coming into the office on Monday unable to talk about it because everyone is still on a different episode. Binge watching problems.

Anyway, to celebrate the release of season two of the show, here’s a rather cool reformatted intro for House of Cards done in the style of The Walking Dead. TWD really does have one of my favorite intros on TV, and my favorite part of every episode is when the music starts to play overlapping for a few seconds with the opening scene. Gets me every time.

There’s some cool video effects used here and the intro shows actual actors unlike The Walking Dead’s which features mostly inanimate objects. I really liked the one where Robin Wright is getting her cigarette lit.

So, are you watching already? How many episodes have you burned through so far?
