1st Logo (January 11, 1995-April 22, 2011)
Logo: On a black background, a T-shaped torch flies into view and reveals a grainy wall, first orange, than a beige color. As the torch flies in, shadows are seen coming into focus forming "EPI OME" in a similar font to the torch. "PICTURES INC." is seen below the second half. The shadowy words settle, forming the word "EPITOME" with the torch. The torch rests along the wall as we fade out.
