After Dark Films is an American independent film production and distribution company founded by Courtney Solomon and Allan Zeman in 2006.

1st Logo (May 5, 2006)

Logo: On a black background, we see a full moon wipe in from the right. Then, the letters "ADF" respectively appear drawing on it, followed by the rest of the company name wiping in from the right in a scrawly handwritten-like font, as the moon turns into a scratchy gold color while the text gains a shadow and shines.

Technique: The moon and text forming.

Music/Sounds: A ominous tune and whooshes coupled with weird-like sounds for the acronyms of the text and a deep synth note at the end.

Availability: Rare. Seen at the end of An American Haunting.

2nd Logo (2006-2013)

Logo: A lens flare takes up most of the screen against a moving moon background. The light reveals the company's name in a serif font (except for "FILMS"), in white, and with a shadow effect.

Variant: Sometimes, the moon has a teal-dark blueish tint to it.

Technique: The moon moving and the lens flare revealing the logo.

Music/Sounds: A slow, deep whoosh.

Availability: Seen on releases from this period such as Captivity.

3rd Logo (August 30, 2013-)

Logo: Fading in, we see the surface of a moon with the sun on the top left portion of the screen. We then zoom out, eventually seeing the company's name in a serif font and in a 3D, steel texture facing sideways, without "FILMS" this time around. The letters then slowly turn to face the screen.

Technique: CGI animation.

Music/Sounds: A dramatic string fanfare that emphasizes more on brass and drums towards the end.

Availability: Current. Seen on newer films from the company starting with Getaway.
