Logo: We start on a slowly turning starfield, which quickly zooms out as the shining stars begin to become blurs. Meanwhile, dim, circular flashes appear and connect via lines (think a connect-the-dots puzzle). The starfield slows down again as ''PICTURES'' forms as a white outline, and ''ELEVATION'' is created from the connecting lines, dropping down. The camera slows into place, as the background becomes white and the text becomes navy blue.
Technique: CGI animation.
Music/Sounds: An ethereal humming sound, complemented by a 12-note pinging tune that syncs up with the flashes appearing, a 'whoosh' sound as we fade to the finished product.
Availability: Can be viewed on most of the films in the Elevation library in Canada such as The Imitation Game, The Big Sick, Moonlight, De Palma, Nightcrawlers, Room (2015), Suburbicon, etc. This logo was also used as a de-facto home video logo.
