Becker Entertainment

From Audiovisual Identity Database

(1993-)

Logo: On a cloudy blue sky background, we see a golden filmstrip zooming out and moving to the right. The filmstrip then half dissolves and gold letters "BECKER" appear in its place. A ray of light then shines forming the word "E N T E R T A I N M E N T" in Futura. The background turns to black as the logo then shines until it fades out.

Variants:

  • On releases outside Australia, the logo is in black and white and is all on one line. "FILMS INTERNATIONAL" replaces "ENTERTAINMENT".
  • Later releases have no cloudy sky and the logo is enhanced.

Technique: The filmstrip and the shining animation.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Seen on Australian releases, most notably Rabbit Proof Fence. Can also be found on Snowy River: The McGregor Saga, following the MTM logo. The early version was recently found at the start of SBS's print of the TV documentary, 42 Up. The international version can be found on a few movies like Control. Was also seen alongside the Magna Pacific logo on some of their releases that were released by the latter. The early version can be seen on the 2001 Australian Magna Pacific DVD releases of Fairytale: A True Story and Emma. The later version can also be seen on the Australian Magna Pacific DVD releases of Scream: Collector's Edition and The Magdalene Sisters.
