Background

FADYO (Film And Drama Youth Organisation) is an Indian Mizo-language film company based in Aizawl that was founded in 2002.

1st Logo (2002)

Nicknames: "Pinnacle Studio Video Test", "Cheap Shattering Glass"

Logo: On a black background, the text "FADYO" in a futuristic font with gold 3D sides slides in from the left. Just when the company name (same as the text above) and the glowing text "Presentation" appear sliding in from the right, the screen crashes into pieces with a pink outline. They fly away and the proper logo fades in, with "Film and Drama Youth Organisation" under "FADYO" in a small size, and "Presentation" in the same size below. After a few seconds, the screen explodes into pieces again, but this time like a window glass being smashed, and falls into the ground.

FX/SFX: The texts sliding, and the transition which is one of the default transitions included with Windows Movie Maker. Seems to have been done with Pinnacle Studio.

Music/Sounds: A low-quality wind blowing sound, followed by two breaking glass sound effects when the screen breaks into pieces twice.

Availability: This logo is only seen on Chhingkhual Lanu, the first film from the company.

Editor's Note: This logo is very cheaply made with its use of stock sound effects and video editor-like animation, but its not as bad as the next one...

2nd Logo (2002-2017)

Nicknames: "The Clown Smile", "The Void of Effort", "Unoriginality Overload", "Interruption of the Universal Globe"

Logo: We start with the animation from the 1990 Universal Studios logo in slow motion. Just before the letters of "UNIVERSAL" appear, the globe is crudely moved to the left in order to expand the starry background from the logo. Then, we see another earth globe spinning and zooming out choppily, which slowly becomes a red circle. A red ring zooms out surrounding the circle. Then, we fade into a 3-D representation of the dot and ring, with a bold arc below, the word "FADYO" curved above, and "Presents" below all of them. Finally, white light rays emerge from the dot in the shape of an at sign ("@") moving up to down on the logo (like a searchlight), and then disappear.

FX/SFX: The opening of the 1990 Universal logo, the background "expanding", the globe zooming out, and the rest of the logo being formed. All of this is done in a choppy framerate.

Music/Sounds: The horn intro from "All You Need is Love" by The Beatles (inspired by "Le Marseillaise", which is also the French national anthem), followed by an ascending rocket-like sound effect, taken from the MS-DOS video game 3D Pinball Space Cadet. After this, the intro from "Free as a Bird" plays, also by The Beatles, and then the same sound effect from earlier when the lights appear.

Availability: Appears on most of the company's films, such as Khuanu Samsuih, Zodinpuii, I Tello Chuan, MIB (Men in Blue) - A Detective Comedy and Tluangtei.

Editor's Note: This logo is somewhat known outside of India for its poor animation and how it stole its elements from other, otherwise copyrighted sources.

3rd Logo (2016-)

Nicknames: "The Clown Smile II", "Blue Clown Smile", "Improved FADYO"

Logo: Amongst a dark background with a beam of light at the top left corner, we see the clown smile logo from before, now in a different shape and coloured blue, appear by a rippling effect. The logo then shines a bit as "FADYO" wipes itself over the logo. Then, we see "Pictures Productions" and "Presents" appear in a rippling effect as the curve of the logo starts to shine. Then, "FADYO" starts to shine. The beam moves throughout the entire logo.

FX/SFX: The rippling effects and text wiping, the beam moving.

Music/Sounds: A peaceful tune with an orchestra, followed by a thumping sound after "FADYO" wipes in.

Availability: So far, it was seen on Favang.

Editor's Note: It's still cheaply made, but definitely a big improvement over the last two logos.
