Cameo

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum



1st Logo (2003-2011)

Visuals: On a dim dark blue floor lit by a light, a hand puts down a origami unicorn. The horn shines at the tip and the unicorn unfolds. The screen focuses on the unicorn unfolding and reforming up close. The paper folds to reveal the word "cameo" in a weird font. The logo zooms in on the text and the folds disappear. The logo shines and the URL "www.cameo.es" fades in under the "meo".

Technique: Stop motion and CGI.

Audio: An eerie synth tune with a shining sound and choir at the end.

Availability: Seen on releases from the period, such as "Camino" (2009).

2nd Logo (2011-2021)



Visuals: On a black background, a flash brings forth an origami Oscar statue on a black pedestal rotating with more flashes in the background. The origami statue crumbles up and then becomes a winged lion (the prize of the Venice Film Festival). The lion crumbles up and then becomes a bear standing up (the prize of the Berlin International Film Festival). The bear crumbles up and then becomes a palm branch (Cannes Film Festival). A bright flash changes the background to solid white with the same text from before in white sticking out of the background with its shadow retracing. The same URL from before fades in.

Trivia: The figures represent the festivals where Cameo went thanks to his films.

Technique: Stop motion and CGI.

Audio: Same as the 1st logo, but with bits of chatter, the announcement of the respective origami prizes, and camera flashes.

Availability: Unknown.
