After Portsmouth

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


This is Ken Olin's vanity card.

1st Logo (April 29, 2005-May 8, 2011)

Visuals: On a black background, a ship, with "after" on left, floats on a blue line, while "PORTSMOUTH" slides downwards below the line.

Trivia: The company's name comes from Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

Technique: 2D animation by New Wave Entertainment and Pembrook Creative.[1]

Audio: A ship horn followed by a 2-note guitar base tune and some waves and pelicans sounds. Composed by Blake Neely.

Audio Variants:

  • ABC airings use a generic theme and leaves the ship horn intact.
  • On the pilot episode of Brothers & Sisters, the theme from the Berlanti Television logo (which is high-pitched) is heard due to editing and format conversion errors.
  • On Introducing Lennie Rose, the tune is slowed down and low-pitched and more normal.

Availability: Seen on the failed pilot of Introducing Lennie Rose and Brothers & Sisters.

2nd Logo (February 11, 2024-)

Visuals: On a black background, a 3D array of outlined blue waves zoom out and narrow themselves as a CGI render of the boat from before floats in from the right. A set of white CGI lines stick out of both sides of the waves, revealing themselves to be the text from before in white and bolded. It is next to the ChangeUp Productions logo.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: So far, the closing theme of the show. CBS airings use a generic theme.

Availability: The logo debuted on Tracker.
