1st Logo (2002-2006)

Screenshot 2021-02-15 Euromedia TV logo (1994-1999)(1).png

Logo: On a black background, a lightened blue box appears. It faces it's light to the screen as it expands, and later reveals the letters E and two F's. The text "EMMETT/FURLA" appears above. Meanwhile, the light of the box dims as it reveals the normal logo, with the letters white, and some gradient boxes seen next to the bottom of the F's. The spaced out "FILMS" also appears below. The gradient boxes flash.

Variant: A shortened version exists.

Technique: The light of the box revealing the logo.

Music/Sounds: None, or the closing theme to the movie/TV program.

Availability: Uncommon. Seen on films released by Emmett/Furla films during the time.

2nd Logo (January 18, 2013-)

Logo: We see an industrial zone with a huge city behind it, at sunrise/sunset. We move down to the rails, as a train moves in. When we get closer to the train, we turn to it's side, as the paint of the train reveals some blue lines, and the background changes to black. The blue line moves while the letters "E", "F" and "F" are shown thanks to the fast movement of the lines. The whole logo is revealed after the lines disappear, with the blue gradient boxes next to the F's, just like the previous one.

Variants:

  • A later variant has an "O" (which stands for Oasis) replacing the second "F". Also, one of the boxes has been moved to the "E".
  • There's also a still variant.

Technique: The train and the words.

Music/Sounds: An ominous beat, followed by train chugging sounds, ending with an ominous synth tune. Otherwise, the opening theme of the movie.

Availability: First seen on Broken City. Also seen on later films by the company, like 2 Guns, and Lone Survivor.
