Background

Zomba Films was the short-lived film division of the record label Zomba Group of Companies, operating under Sony Music Entertainment. It dissolved sometime around 2007, with its parent record label dissolving a year after.

Logo: A small yellow loudspeaker comes and jumps around the dark surface. Then a medium-size red speaker appears, knocking the yellow one off the screen, and dances on the floor. A large blue loudspeaker rises from the border and in turn, blows the red one off the screen. The 3D word "ZOMBA" falls down, with "FILMS" below. The blue speaker moves behind and sends out some light rays.

Trivia: This logo was storyboarded and creative directed by Ken Koster, and the animation was done by 6 Foot Studios. You can see the original digital print of the logo here, posted by Koster.

Technique: All in cartoony CGI animation.

Music/Sounds: A catchy dance-pop tune inspired by Britney Spears, *NSYNC, Christina Aguilera and the Backstreet Boys.

Availability: Rare. It was only seen on Crossroads.

Legacy: Although the animation can be nice to look at, it's a shame how this logo was completely wasted, since it only appeared on one film. Despite this, the logo was used for about five years off-screen before disappearing completely in 2007.
