Allegro Films Distribution

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Allegro Films Distribution was a Canadian film distributor which was founded by Canadian filmmaker Tom Berry in 1984 and purchased by Le Groupe Coscient in 1995. Most of their films were distributed by Image Organization and later on, Libra Pictures, occasionally working with other distributors too. In 1999, Allegro Films Distribution shut down after Le Groupe Coscient went bankrupt. The company was based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Berry went on to start Premiere Bobine in Ottawa. Most if not all of Allegro's catalog currently sits with TVA Films.

Logo (1988-1999)

Visuals: On a gray-black lined background, a blue spark writes out five thin double-spaced white lines to form a sol key. Then the letters "A", "L", "L", "E", "G", "R", and "O" (all in black) take each of the spaces and lines on it. The letters change to orange-red and meet up as the thin lines join to form a thick one. The thick line reveals "FILMS DISTRIBUTION" in white underneath "ALLEGRO" and exits to the right. A black shadow appears under "FILMS DISTRIBUTION" and the bottom of the words "ALLEGRO" shines.

Technique: 2D computer animation.

Audio: A peaceful harmony tune with bells as the lines writes out, chromatic percussions for the letters in "ALLEGRO" appearing, violins for the meeting and cello for the shining at the end.

Availability: Seen on every feature released by Allegro on VHS until their closure in 1999. On the VHS of Windigo, this logo appears before the warning screen.
