Anchored by the iconic “Bates Motel” sign, the title sequence for A&E’s contemporary PSYCHO prequel television series transitions from shattered black-and-white to color as a distant storm approaches the house where Norman Bates spends his formative teenage years.
This 15 second title sequence was originally created by Daniel M. Kanemoto before the Season 1 premiere at the request of executive producer Carlton Cuse (LOST), who invited the public to submit concepts in an online competition to design the opening titles.
This was the winning concept.
Directed & Animated by Daniel M. Kanemoto
Music Composed & Conducted by Ryan Shore
