Logo (June 11, 1980)

Note: This logo is NOT Nazi-related.

Visuals: There is a blurry white background. It then reveals its blur, zooming out, an abstract "NI" with the N being curved and the I being on the last line of the N. An orange square with the swastika resembles the point of the I. Below it is the company’s name "FILMUNIT" in an evil-red-orange font, that looks like a British old imprint script, on a black background.

Trivia: Even though the Nazis adopted it in the 1920s, the swastika originated in the late Paleolithic period (the oldest known archaeological record is from 10,000 BC in Mezine, modern Ukraine), and has appeared all across the world, especially in Asia, where it has been used by Zoroastrianism, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism from the 5th century BC up to today, usually meaning "good luck".

Technique: Camera-controlled animation.

Audio: A series of unintelligible pings made by a synth piano, and then three fast glissandos played by another synth piano.

Availability: Seen only on Man Pasand.
