Background

Voltage Pictures is a Los Angeles based film company, formed by Nicholas Chartier in 2005.



1st Logo (2012)

Logo: Sparks form on a black background. After they vanish, a high voltage warning sign in green with a silver zap and outline above the silver text "VOLTAGE PICTURES" appears via a flip effect. The screen flashes, causing the logo to turn red (save for the inside of the triangle, which turns black), and the logo slowly zooms forward.

Variant: Sometimes, the logo doesn't turn red (save for the inside of the triangle, which turns black).

Technique: The sparks, the flash and the logo turning.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Seen on films from the period, such as The Company You Keep.


2nd Logo (January 18, 2013- )

Logo: We pan through the outskirts of an abandoned electrical plant. We then move towards the door to the generator room, which has the company logo on it glowing. When we get close enough, the screen flashes, cutting to the previous logo's finished product from before which also zooms forward.

Variants:

  • On Good Kill, the logo is in black and white.
  • A shortened version appears on Sniper: Special Ops and I Feel Pretty.
  • A version that ends with 3D letters appears on Intruder.
  • Sometimes, this logo appears in a box with other company logos.
  • On the French BluRay release of Run Hide Fight, the logo jumps between shots of its animation.

Technique: The panning and the flash. Not too bad...

Music/Sounds: Some electrical zaps, along with modified excerpts from "Behold the Darkness" by Medwyn Goodall.

Availability: Common. Appeared on films like Dallas Buyers Club, Don Jon, After, Knock Knock and the Australian release of Ambushed. Still in use, in spite of the next logo being introduced.


3rd Logo (October 1, 2015- )

Logo: We see a panorama of a night city with stormy weather and an electric line in front view. A lightning hits the line and we follow the spark down to the fence and the rusty table with "VOLTAGE" sign, which blows up and becomes the logo.

Technique: The animation of lightnings.

Music/Sounds: Stormy and electric sounds.

Availability: Seen on Fathers and Daughters. It is not as commonly used as the previous logo.
