“I wonder how the opening credits of the show came to be. The song, the split screens, even the font of the lettering is perfect. Very well done! I have never seen another show with such a great opening.”
Great question, Dennis. I’ve rarely been asked that.
Once Merle Haggard agreed to write and perform the theme song, I knew I wanted something for the Main Credits that evoked the open road, something that looked like our heroes were traveling down the highway….”big wheels rollin’…. Movin’ On”…. taking them and their big rig all across America.
Our editors came up with the split screen idea. It was perfect, depicting lanes on a highway – and movement, always movement. When those images and shifting lines were married with the song, it worked beautifully. For the font I wanted something that had a “bold military” feel that said strong and solid. Again, I credit our editors. They presented me several choices and we selected what you see today. I agree, it’s a title sequence that “pops out” at the viewer. Thanks Dennis for your enthusiasm. I’m very pleased that you like what we presented.

This is our 2015 Christmas card. It has been posted on Facebook since before the holiday, but as the website is new and still developing, it’s arriving here a little late. It’s here now for all to see. Better late than…. even later. The photo is a publicity shot taken around the time of In Tandem, the Movin’ On pilot and Movie-Of-The-Week.
It’s been a great year for Movin’ On. We are growing rapidly, like a snowman rolling down an unplowed grade.
We promise that we will not rest. Next year we will continue providing fans with more quality products, provide more outlets to watch episodes, and to continue providing great content on the website and Facebook.
Thanks for all your support and a belated Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
