Fans of A&E’s Bates Motel were able to enter the creepy world of Norman Bates and share the experience during San Diego Comic-Con.  A recreated basement workshop with props similar to those on the set of the original series made its debut on the convention floor on Preview Night.

We went behind Norman’s table to create a custom GIF with the infamous taxidermic bird as inspired by the world of Alfred Hitchcock.  On the way out, we were handed a Bates Motel postcard with this message: “Dear Mother, having a killer time at Comic-Con!  I even snuck into Norman’s basement!”
