Red Wagon Entertainment

From Audiovisual Identity Database

Background

Red Wagon Entertainment is the production company of producer Douglas Wick. Despite being formed as early as 1999, the company didn't use a logo until 2003. In 2000, he expanded the company to bring in Lucy Fisher, his partner and wife.



1st Logo (March 1-September 24, 2003)

Logo: On a white background, a still shot of a red wagon in motion slowly zooms in. The words, "Red Wagon", in spaced-out letters, slides in from the left and "Entertainment", again in spaced-out letters, slides in from the right above and below the wagon respectively. The words zoom out from view and after a few seconds, the wagon zooms in for a close up causing the words to zoom away before fading out.

Technique: The words sliding in, the logo zooming.

Music/Sounds: The end theme of the series.

Availability: Rare. This was seen on Stuart Little: The Animated Series on HBO Family, DVD, and CTV Throwback.

2nd Logo (June 24, 2005-October 28, 2020)

Logo: A flash occurs, and the camera pans out of a reflection on a red wagon, standing in grass fields with clouds moving above. The camera zooms out of a light blink on a board of a red hand-cart with the same design as before, only much more detailed and metallic, standing on the grass fields with clouds moving above. The wagon encloses itself in a box on a black background as the following text fades in underneath:

Variants:

  • On Hollow Man 2, the logo is tinted in blue.
  • On Divergent, the logo is tinted in sepia and appears on a sepia matrix background just like the preceding Summit Entertainment logo.
  • On The Divergent Series: Insurgent, the logo is formed by light blue pixels as it zooms out.
  • On The Divergent Series: Allegiant, the logo is in gold and is formed from pixels. After a while, it glitches out.

Technique: CGI animation done by Picturemill.

Music/Sounds: A nice orchestral theme. Sometimes it's silent or has the opening theme of the movie.

Availability: Common. Seen on films from the company such as Bewitched, the end of Jarhead and Memoirs of a Geisha (the opening uses an in-credit disclaimer), RV, the Divergent series, and made its last appearance on The Craft: Legacy. This logo does not appear on The Great Gatsby.

3rd Logo (December 7, 2021-)

Logo: On a white background, we see the wagon from before, now shaded and illustrated. Below it is the stacked company name.

Technique: None.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme.

Availability: Brand new. First seen on Joe Pickett on Spectrum, which also marks the company's first TV series in 18 years. It may be seen on upcoming films from the company.

Legacy: It's considered boring compared to the previous logo, especially since it follows the "simplification" trend of many other logos.
