Tripictures is a movie distribution company founded in 1987 in Madrid, Spain. This company focuses on the distribution of high-profile films (The Princess Bride being its first successful feature) and home videos. In 2006, it was purchased by the media group Vocento.
1st Logo (1989-2003)
Logo: On a blue background, two silver hemispheres zoom out: the one above is fully formed whilst the one below is parted in two halves. Between them is a horizontal blank space. The overall set turns to reveal a sphere with a T-shaped blank space. As the sphere turns, these words come from the right:
T R I
The now finished logo shines.
Technique: Late '80s state-of-the-art CGI.
Music/Sounds: Generally silent, though sometimes a mellow flute-driven jingle with synths plays.
Availability: Uncommon. Can be spotted on Spanish films on VHS such as The Princess Bride.
2nd Logo (2003- )
Logo: As we start on a starfield, the logo zooms in like in the previous logo, but more elaborate. The glowing sphere rotates on the screen, when the name "TRIPICTURES" is wiped below, now in one word.
Variant: Sometimes, the logo has a slight gold tint.
Technique: Good quality animation of the sphere.
Music/Sounds: Starting with the dark whoosh sound of the flying parts, then the short orchestral plays and ends with the piano note.
Availability: Common on a lot of Spanish DVDs and television prints of movies distributed by this company; and easy to find in that country.
