Bates Motel executive producer Carlton Cuse invites fans to create their own opening sequence for the upcoming A&E thriller. With 15 seconds of opener to fill, that's not a lot of time. Cuse is careful to note that they are looking for something that "captures the feel of Bates Motel -- not as a slasher/horror show, but as a complex, character-based thriller." If Cuse chooses your video clip, it will be the official show opener.
Bates Motel is a "prequel" to Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho. Set during modern times, the focus is on an adolescent Norman Bates, his overbearing mother Norma, his rebel brother Dylan, and what turned Norman into the monster we all know and love.
The series will premiere this March on A&E. The contest is open until January 3rd; for more details visit the offical Bates Motel Facebook page.
