Founded in August 2006 by Constantin Kikichev and Vyacheslav Mugurov as Kinoconstanta, it was a Russian production company engaged in the production of television series, sketch shows and entertainment shows for TV channels like STS. The company was acquired in December 2007 by STS Media and was renamed into Costafilm due to the requirements of the deal. In 2011, Costafilm was merged with Soho Media to create the Story First Production studio, which was later closed in December 2013 by the STS Media holding.


Logo (March 7, 2007-February 8, 2008)

Visuals: Over a brown background with moving dark yellow clouds is the shiny word "КИНОКОНСТАНТА" zooming out and rotating letter-by-letter. Under it are the three stylized letters "С" (arranged like a portal), also rotating. Two golden lines form, making the company name being sandwiched between them. The logo forms and becomes flat-shaded, and the text "продюсерская компания" appears below letter-by-letter as the background turns black and moving clouds disappear.

Technique: CGI animation.

Availability: Seen on productions from period, such as Кадетство (starting from the 2nd season) and Папины дочки (until the end of the 3rd season).
