Efftee Studios was an early Australian film and theatre production studio, established by F.W. Thring (the name 'Efftee' deriving from his initials, 'FT' for Francis Thring) in 1930. It existed until Thring's death in 1935. Initially Efftee Films was based in Melbourne and used optical sound equipment imported from the US.

(November 6, 1931- October 13, 1934)

Logo: On a black background, we see footage of a koala climbing a eucalyptus tree and after that, it starts eating the leaves and looks around the horizon. The footage is surrounded with a marquee. The words "EFFTEE FILM" and "PRODUCTIONS" are placed on 2 separate ribbons below with the bottom half of the marquee having leaves surrounded by it.

Variant: There is a extended version of the footage.

Technique: Mostly live action. The footage was filmed on a tree in the Australian outback.

Music/Sounds: None or the opening music of the film.

Availability: Rare, as this was seen on films from the company such as Clara Gibbings (1934), Diggers (1931).
