Background

Favorit-Film (Фaворит-Фильм) is a Russian company created in 2003 to produce television series. It has already made numerous well-known (in Russia) series, along with a pair of "big" films. In latest years, FF work in a venture with Central Partnership.

1st Logo (December 4, 2003-2005)


Logo: A white horse is racing onto the hill top. Then it stops and rears, letting out a loud whinny. The sunlight at the background gathers to a pink hemisphere and the word "ФАВОРИТФИЛЬМ" zooms out in red. The text "ПРОДЮСЕРСКИЙ ЦЕНТР" ("PRODUCTION CENTER") fades in below in white.

Variant: In 2004, the logo was enhanced to include a different sunrise. The word "ФИЛЬМ" is colored in soft yellow and the horse runs for a longer time.

Technique: The animation of the horse and environment.

Music/Sounds: The shortened version of the 1998 Plastic Wax logo music accompanied by galloping sounds, followed by a trumpet and drum fanfare starting the rising harp, with the horse whinnying. The enhanced variant has the first music uncut.

Availability: Not rare in Russia. Seen on many TV-series produced by the time. Can be seen in other countries as the company production is on sale there. The original version was only used on Подари мне жизнь.

2nd Logo (October 22, 2007- )


Logo: A golden thread appears on the blue starfield. Then it rushes to the left, changing scenes, and creates a rearing horse outline, which then fills in gold and shines. The name with the hilltop also fades in below in a splash of light. The shine appears on the horse hoof.

Variants:

  • The upline "PRODUCTION BY" (in Russian) was made in white letters before 2009.
  • The still variant has the compressed upline made in the same font as the name.
  • There is a upline-less version used in the big movies.

Technique: Great animation.

Music/Sounds: A different, somewhat gloomy orchestral fanfare. None for the still version.

Availability: Common. The early version was seen on Kapkan. The logo without upline was used on the full movie Looser. The still version with newer upline was seen in Wolf Messing, which was airing in the First Channel.
