Virtual Studios was an American film financier, distributor and production studio founded by Tibor Hernadí and Benjamin Waisbren in 1986. It was known for producing films such as V For Vendetta, Poseidon, 300, and Nancy Drew. In 2006, the company launched a film distribution division called Virtual Films, which only distributed one film, First Born, and was shut down the following year. In 2009, after the company was left dormant for a year due to the box-office flop of its final film, Bangkok Dangerous, Virtual Studios was shut down.

(January 20, 2005-September 5, 2008)

Nicknames: "The CGI V", "V with Door"

Logo: We see first askew lines of light. We then zoom out and the light keeps growing, also revealing that the light comes, behind a door in a big "V" letter, ready to burst out. The door then flies open, the light erupts behind the door revealing the words "VIRTUAL STUDIOS". The light shows shadows of some letters before the door slowly closes but leaves halfway open. There's still light coming behind the door when the logo is completely formed.

Technique: The light moving and forming the logo.

Music/Sounds: A calm synth theme played against whooshes and sparkling noises. At the end of V for Vendetta, it's silent.

Availability: Seen on several films like Nancy Drew, Poseidon and 300. Also seen at the end of V for Vendetta.
