1st Logo (2002-2006)

Visuals: On a black background, a lightened blue box appears. It faces its light to the screen as it expands, and later reveals the letters "E" and two "F"s. The text "EMMETT/FURLA" appears above. Meanwhile, the light of the box dims as it reveals the normal logo, with the letters white, and some blue gradient boxes seen next to the bottom of the "F"s. The spaced out "FILMS" also appears below. The gradient boxes flash.

Variant: A shortened version exists.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: None or the closing theme to the movie/TV program.

Availability: Seen on such films as Blind Horizon, Control, 16 Blocks, The Wicker Man (2006), and The Contract.

2nd Logo (January 4, 2011-)

Visuals: There is an industrial zone with a huge city behind it, at sunset. The camera moves down to the rails, as a train moves in. When the camera gets closer to the train, it turns to its side, as the paint of the train reveals some blue lines, and the background changes to black. The blue line moves while the letters "E", "F" and "F" are shown thanks to the fast movement of the lines. The whole logo is revealed after the lines disappear, with the blue gradient boxes next to the "F"s, just like the previous one.


  • Sometimes, the stacked text "EMMETT/FURLA FILMS" would appear in the same style as the previous logo.
  • On Catch.44, the bars are red and the letters are fully visible.
  • There's also a still variant.
  • On Lay the Favorite, the logo is placed in a black box on a white background.
    • On Gun, the text appears along with the logo.
  • A later variant has an "O" (which stands for Oasis) replacing the second "F". Also, one of the boxes has been moved to the "E".

Technique: CGI.

Audio: An ominous beat, followed by train chugging sounds, ending with an ominous synth tune. Otherwise, the opening theme of the movie.

Availability: The logo debuted as a still variant on Gun, while the animated version was first seen on Broken City. Also seen on End of Watch, 2 Guns, Escape Plan, Lone Survivor, and Inconceivable, among other films.
