This Beautiful Animation for The Wire Is Absolutely Fantastic

By Casey Chan on at

The Wire absolutely belongs in the television hall of fame. Its intro sequence was always one of the most memorable parts, simply because of the music and how it utilised close ups of the season's scenes while painting a broader picture of the entire world of The Wire.

Elliot Lim re-does the intro sequence in animation, which wouldn’t seem like it would work for a TV show this gritty. But it manages because it captures so much of the shows essence.

The transitions are beautiful and effortless and does such a good job in drawing the lines between the characters (and also connecting them).
