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.
