Imaginary Forces Partners with Koppel Group to Brand Koppel on Discovery Series

Entertainment and design company Imaginary Forces (IF) recently designed the main titles for "The Price of Security," part of the Koppel On Discovery long-form programming developed by Ted Koppel and Executive Producer Tom Bettag exclusively for the Discovery Channel. The series touches on some of the most important events, people and places changing lives today. "The Price of Security" special premiered on Sunday, September 10, 2006 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

"The Price of Security" addresses the delicate balance between national security and individual liberties after the 9/11 attacks. Imaginary Forces, led by Creative Director Karin Fong, created main titles that reflected the push and pull between these critical issues.

Fong explains that, "In creating the main title sequence for 'The Price of Security,' we were able to use our cinematic skills as a storyteller and design firm... and the graphics take a filmic and artistic approach with a high production value." IF was thrilled to partner on the sequence with Composer Cliff Martinez who created the powerful, original theme music for the titles and the program.

Imaginary Forces is responsible for creating the main titles for the entire Koppel On Discovery series, which will include six to eight documentaries over the next year. Upcoming programs include an exploration on Iran and the powerful position it holds in the Middle East.

Additionally, IF designed a sophisticated and elegant logo for the Koppel On Discovery series, which reinforces the cinematic aesthetic of the programming and features a globe as a visual allusion to the Discovery Channel brand.
