FLT Films International was a Philippine film company. The company made films from the 1980's to 2006, when their last film Pacquiao: The Movie (which was a collaboration with Star Cinema/ABS-CBN) was released. Following the closure, the entire FLT Films International library (including the distribution rights to the 2003 RCP Productions film Alab ng Lahi) were later brought by Viva Communications (thru Viva Films) with the exception of the films Di Puwedeng Hindi Puwede!, Ooops, Teka Lang... Diskarte Ko 'To! and Pacquiao: The Movie were remained with Star Cinema.
Logo: We see the red word "FLT", and "FILMS", in blue, flashes in below.
Technique: The flash.
Music/Sounds: The opening theme of the movie, although a synth-pop theme was used on one occasion.
Availability: Very rare. Might appear in the company's very first films.
FLT Films International
1st Logo (December 27, 1991-1994)
Logo: On a black background, a 2D film reel rolls in. It is still spinning when it stops. Then the yellow filmstrip comes out of the reel, goes to us and zooms, making the screen fully yellow. The yellow screen zooms out to reveal a glowing "F", in a futuristic font. The F moves to the left to give space to the letters "L" and "T", forming "FLT", which then glows red and "FILMS INTERNATIONAL", in white/blue gradient, fades in below.
- Some films feature a darker logo.
- Early films have the logo flashing instead of glowing red.Technique: The film reel, the filmstrip coming out of the reel, zooming effects, and glowing. 2D animation that fits the 90s' Philippine logo standards.
Music/Sounds: Early films had a bright synth note, along with a warbling sound, a weird sound, a whoosh and bells. Later films had another theme: a deep sound resembling a film projector, then another weird sound, followed by a dark 2-note string theme.
Music/Sounds Variants: On Tatak Ng Criminal, the opening theme of the movie was used.
Availability: Scarce. The company's films range from soft-core to action-based. Some examples that include the logo are Moro and Anak ng Pasig.
Legacy: The logo might scare some due to the filmstrip coming to the screen and dark music.
2nd Logo (1994-1997)
Music/Sounds: Silent, but on Batang Estero a whoosh sound is heard.
Availability: Extremely rare, appears on some films like Epimaco Velasco: NBI.
3rd Logo (1998-2001)
Logo: On a black background, we see red/blue filmstrips appearing and making the FLT from before, then it zooms out while rotating. Once it stops, the logo flashes in quickly, then "FILMS INTERNATIONAL", in yellow, slides in below. A copy of the same text, but in cyan, appears at the left, slides and places behind the original text.
Variants: There is a prototype version where the FLT logo flashes twice between "FILMS INTERNATIONAL" slides in then after that it shines, this was seen on Tulak ng bibig, Kabig ng dibdib.
Technique: The logo being formed by filmstrips, zooming out and flashing. "FILMS INTERNATIONAL" sliding in.
Music/Sounds: An ascending fanfare with windchimes.
- On Di' pwedeng, Hindi pwede!, a triumphant fanfare is heard.
- On Ako'y ibigin mo... Lalaking matapang, a dark music with flashes was heard.
- On Tulak ng bibig,kabig ng dibdib (the first movie to use this logo),a film projector sound with flashes without music is heard.
- On Virgin Wife (the last movie to use this logo), you can hear drumbeats along with ascending fanfare.Availability: Scarce. This can be found on their films during the late 90's and early 00's, before their next logo was introduced. One of these include Di' pwedeng, Hindi pwede!, along with the short version of the first Star Cinema logo.
4th Logo (2001)
Availability: Rare, appears on some films like Ooops, teka lang... Diskarte ko to!
5th Logo (2001-2006)
Logo: We first see a red flower pedals with sprocket on a dark (not absolute black) background. After two takes, a black/yellow filmstrip comes out and forms the FLT logo while the red thing disappears. On the last take (there's 5 takes of the filmstrip making the logo, plus 2 at the beginning, making 7), the FLT zooms out while being finishes and places at the center. Then "Films International" appears by white rays of light below it.
Technique: Good early 00's CGI for a Philippine logo of the time.
Music/Sounds: None, but Mama San has an ascending synth theme .
Availability: Very rare. This can be found on the company's last films. The logo is absent on Alab ng Lahi which FLT handling the distribution rights.
