Crusader Entertainment

(April 19, 2002-August 11, 2004)

Logo: We fade into snowy mountains at sunset. As we move back and the sky turns into night, a comet appears on the sky, and then explodes, leaving a light burst and the words "CRUSADER" and "ENTERTAINMENT".

Technique: The sky, the comet, the explosion, the light.

Music/Sounds: An ascending piano fanfare ending in a majestic hit.

Availability: Seen on early 2000's films, including Swimming Upstream and Where The Red Fern Grows.

Bristol Bay Productions

(October 29, 2004-January 18, 2008)

Logo: We zoom through the trees into a silhouette scenery (except the lake) with the northern lights with the wolf standing on the rock. A computer generated lake is seen with the reflection in the scenery. As the camera stops zooming, the wolf turns its head right, the northern lights turn into a tornado-shaped Milky Way and then the words "BRISTOL BAY PRODUCTIONS" appear.

Variant: On Sahara, there was a coin flipping in the logo.

Technique: The silhouette scenery and the wolf, all in great-looking computer animation.

Music/Sounds: The same fanfare from the Crusader Entertainment logo. On Amazing Grace, it's silent and on Sahara, It was the opening theme.

Availability: Seen on Ray, Sahara, The Game of Their Lives, Amazing Grace and The Great Buck Howard.
