1st Logo (2000-2009)

Logo: On a white background, enclosed in a thin black border, a film reel zooms out and settles in the top left corner of the screen. The rest of the company's name wipes in, the film reel forming the "O" in "Original". The web address "www.origprod.com" wipes in at the same time as the text.

Early Variant: Originally, there was no web address or black border and the whole animation was significantly more zoomed-out.

FX/SFX: The film reel zooming out, the wipe in.

Music/Sounds:

  • An ominous drum hit followed by some kids singing in a sing-song tone, "Iiiit's originaaaaal".
  • The early variant just had the end theme of the show.

Availability: The early variant is only known to be seen on Discovery Channel wrestling VHS tapes. The later variant is seen on the first season of 1000 Ways to Die.

Editor's Note: None.


2nd Logo (2009-)

Logo: On a black background, we see what looks like a giant smudge of blue chalk. "Original Productions" in a white chalk like font is written on it. The byline "A FremantleMedia Company" is below.

Variants:

  • There is an early bylineless variant reading "Original Productions, LLC" instead.
  • Starting around 2016, both words of the name as well as the smudge all slide into place. The byline appears one letter at a time.

FX/SFX: None for the original, simple animation for the later variant.

Music/Sounds: The same "It's original" as the 1st logo for the static. The end theme of the show for the animated.

Availability: Seen on season 2-onwards episodes of 1000 Ways to Die, as well as the pilot of its failed spinoff 1000 Ways to Lie. Also seen on Badlands, Storage Wars Texas, Whisker Wars and Quit Your Day Job (the debut and only place so far to use the later variant). Despite their massive output, the company usually just uses an in-credit notice.

Editor's Note: None.
