Background

Aniventure (formerly known as Mass Animation and Comic Animations) is a British (formerly American) content creation and intellectual property company based in London and was set up in 2008 as Mass Animation, who best known for producing the short film Live Music before Planet 51 and the TV series Mother Up! In 2013, another company was founded called Comic Animations (now known as Aniventure since 2019), which has no relation to this company. During that time, Mass Animation would later become dormant and shutting down the company later in the mid-late 2010s, and was absorbed into Aniventure during the re-production of Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank (formerly titled as Blazing Samurai) along with Cinesite (replacing Arc Productions after they shut down earlier and it was re-opened as Jam Filled Toronto in 2016).

Note: This page will include Mass Animation, because of its previous existence before Aniventure absorbed it.

Logo: On a black background, several multicolored squares (including white ones) appear via an iris effect and soon quickly come together in the center of the screen. After they do so, they form a light-blue rectangular symbol with a white rectangle outline and the multicolored squares inside it, with the words "MASS ANIMATION" inside it in white and in a blocky font, with a black outline also around it. A small "presents" then fades in below the logo.

Variant: On Mother Up!, "presents" is removed.

Technique: 2D animation.

Logo: On a black background, we see a gold rectangle that has a silhouette of a child running and holding a balloon that looks like a wonky star right behind it. The text "ANIVENTURE" can also be seen below the symbol in a stylized font. The logo stays in place for a few seconds before a dark brown-reddish colored light shines across the logo, revealing a bunch of huge particles floating around the logo and lighting up the star as it passes by.

Variants:

Technique: CGI.

Music/Sounds: The opening theme of the movie.

Availability: Current. It was first seen on Aniventure's YouTube channel and later appeared on its first two movies Riverdance: The Animated Adventure and Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank.
