Background

Futurikon is a French independent company founded in 1996 by Phillippe Delarue. The company is known for The Ugly Duckling and Me, Dragon Hunters, and Minuscule: The Private Life of Insects.

(1999-)

Logo: On a white background, we see a black dot fall onto the floor. Then the dot starts drawing a gold swirl-like object. After the object draws, the dot begins to bounce in, forming the words "FUTUR" in white on a black square and "IKON" in black with a black outline, creating a box-like rectangle. Finally, the dot lands to the letter "I".

Variants:

  • A short version exists, where it begins when the dot bounces.
  • There is also a still version on a black background that appears on Willa's Wild Life, Fly Tales and U.S. airings of Minuscule: The Private Life of Insects on Disney Channel.
  • There is another version where the words "Films" is shown below. It was first seen on the original French release of the 2008 film Dragon Hunters, which used the animated variant.
  • A letterboxed version exists, this was used on some films from the company such as Minuscule: Valley of the Lost Ants.

Technique: The dot and the logo forming.

Music/Sounds: A dropping sound when the dot drops, followed by a 12-note piano tune when the words appears.

Availability: Common. Can be seen at the end of Fly Tales, Monster Energy, Kaput & Zosky, Willa's Wild Life, Minuscule: The Private Life of Insects, among others. This also appears on some of these films by the company.
