Brighter Pictures

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Brighter Pictures was a British television production company that was formed in 1992 by Gavin Hay and Remy Blumenfeld. The company later expanded to set up offices in Scotland and Mumbai. It was sold off to Endemol in 2001. It was later merged with Cheetah Television into Remarkable Television (now Remarkable Entertainment) in 2009.

1st Logo (April 19, 1996-August 2, 1998)

Visuals: A blue radio signal is emitted from a moving background consisting of two scrolling black surfaces textured with cyan and violet skies. The animation stretches from a wide rectangle into a square box where "BRIGHTER PICTURES", with a bright spotlight in the centre, zooms in and rests on the bottom of the sequence. Before the background sequence radially wipes into white, additional in-credit information fade in below.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: A deep synthesized hum for the entire sequence, alongside a whoosh when the background sequence stretches.

Availability: Seen on early Brighter Pictures programmes such as Flava and the Arthouse documentary "The Other Francis Bacon".

2nd Logo (February 16, 1999-2002)

Visuals: On a black background, there is a light blue neon sign of a "b", together with a purple neon sign of a tubular "p" that connects with the "b". Both signs flash twice, and the text "A Brighter Pictures Production", with some credit info fading in below.


  • Sometimes, the logo is still.
  • On later programmes, the text reads "BRIGHTER PICTURES" with a byline "part of ENDEMOL entertainment UK" fading in below.
  • On programmes produced by its Scotland division, the text "SCOTLAND" appears below the text.

3rd Logo (2002-September 4, 2009)

Visuals: It's just the standard Endemol logo from the period, but with the text reading "brighter pictures" and a byline reading "an endemol company" below.
