Big Machine Design (BMD), a full-service creative services studio based in Hollywood, has completed a new main title opening sequence and show package for the new reality show ?Unan1mous, which recently made its debut on FOX. The announcement was made today by BMD co-founders Steve Petersen and Ken Carlson.

On behalf of client 3 Ball Productions, BMD designed and produced the entire show graphics package including the Main Title Sequence. Robin Feinberg, Co-Executive Producer of ?Unan1mous, said, ?Big Machine is a very talented, passionate, and innovative team. They are going places! In ?Unan1mous, nine contestants are holed up in a bunker. They are not allowed to leave the bunker until one of them is selected?unanimously?to be the winner of $ 1.5 million.

?The client asked us to develop a clean look for the main title that would promote the ideas of isolation and elimination, but include elements of action, said BMD Executive Producer Steve Petersen. "Because of the secrecy involved in the production of the show, we didn't have the option of shooting live action elements with the cast. Instead, we created an entirely graphics based main title with a really unique look and feel."

"We were inspired by the metallic voting orbs that the contestants use to pick a winner," said BMD Creative Director Ken Carlson. "We modeled, textured and animated the orbs to give them displays that would help explain the rules of the show. In addition, we created a customized title sequence for each episode that features the UNAN1MOUS logo transforming into a count of the current prize money to be won."
