Logo: We pan across a sandy beach while crossfading into other panning shots of the same beach. Then, we zoom out as a shadow of a seashell appears, as a blue seashell floats and zooms out. The background shrinks into a box on a black background while the seashell pokes out of the box. "EMSHELL" and "PRODUCERS" are seen next to the box in a thin white font.

Variant: Earlier films with this logo have the word "PRESENTS" fading in under the box.

Technique: The camera panning, the seashell zooming out, the box shrinking, "PRESENTS" fading in.

Music/Sounds: Waves crashing and seagulls.

Availability: Uncommon. Seen on Ernest Rides Again, Ernest Goes to School, Slam Dunk Ernest, Ernest Goes to Africa, and Ernest in the Army.
