After shooting the original Scrubs main title, the next year, another one was created with the original cast. Since this shoot is based on motion control, with a computerized camera move, the length of the main title is locked. You can’t make it longer or shorter. So, in season 2, the network was so happy with the main title, they asked us to create a longer one. Season 1 was 12 seconds and the new one was roughly 20 seconds. But, it never aired. The band that created the song, simply sang it slower to reach the 20 seconds. ABC was so unhappy about this, they refused to let the main title air. They felt the music gave the show a slow start; they were probably right, but our main title was even better than the first one. • In the final season of the show, there was a new cast. Originally, ABC cancelled the show. The original actors all went onto new jobs. But then, they decided to bring the show back. Unfortunately, the cast was gone, so they revamped the show with new interns; which meant a new cast. The show wanted us to challenge ourselves again, to create an even more technically difficult shoot. We shot in two locations while blending them together - going from classroom to the operating room. To add more of a challenge, the first two Scrubs main titles were two day shoots each. This third one; they gave us six hours to do the whole shoot. Ouch.
Did you know the x-ray that contains the logo is backwards?! This became a running joke within the show - and made it into some scripts of episodes. Fans noticed it, but instead of fixing it, the writers wrote it into the script that they knew it was backwards; even though it was a mistake. WunderFilm created the logo and x-ray. We asked the set medic which way to use the x-ray; but obviously, we were told wrong. We’re good designers, just not good doctors! We had the chance to fix it in the final season, but the producers felt it became such an iconic part of the show, that it had to stay as a mistake. We couldn’t have agreed more!Watch Video
