Impact Pictures

1st Logo (2004)

Logo: Same as the normal Davis Films logo, but the text on the rhombus is already there and there's the solid rhombus with the words "IMP/\CT" with the word "CANADA" below is conjoined the rhombus.

Technique: Same as the normal Davis Films logo.

Music/Sounds: Same as the normal Davis Films logo.

Availability: Seen only on Resident Evil: Apocalypse.

2nd Logo (June 15, 2007)

Logo: We see a lightbulb on the dark. We fade into more closer shots of it, as it starts lighting up. Then a butterfly-like bug (possibly a moth) flies to the lightbulb, and gets zapped by the lightbulb while it surrounds with swirling sparks as we see close-ups of the action. Later on, we see the same lightbulb with bloodmarks making the words "IMPACT PICTURES" on it. We gets a bit far from the lightbulb as it flashes brighter.

Variant: Print version exists on closing credits, which is merely the name in two lines.

Technique: The animation.

Music/Sounds: Sounds of the action, mostly zapping and the lightbulb being touched, and a camera flash sound when the lightbulb flashes.

Availability: The full version was seen exclusively on D.O.A. (2006). Doesn't appear on Resident Evil series. On Pandorum, the closing version shares the screen with Overture Films and Constantin Film logos.
