Logo: On a farm with a plowed field with stars sticking out of it, two trees, a barn (which has the word "GROW" on the roof) with a silo and a small fence in the background, all at night, we see the words "STAR FARM PRODUCTIONS" as 5 stars fly over the words from right to left and form an arc as the stars in the sky and in the field glow one by one.

Variant: In the logo's early days, the logo only had the text fading in and no stars in the sky.

Technique: The stars flying over the words and the stars in the sky and in the field glowing one by one.
