Filmko

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Background

Filmko was formed in 2000 by Alex Wong and directors Derek Yee and Chi Leung "Jacob" Cheung after Wong's production house Alexander Entertainment Production Limited.

1st Logo (2001-2003)


Visuals: There is an eight-pointed star rotating on a foggy background, as lights illuminate the background and a lens flare moves around from top to bottom. The star stops rotating and a light appears behind, as they move above a bit to fit into a zooming-out square frame, and the words "FILMKO PICTURES" in the Gill Sans font and "presents" in the Times New Roman font, fade in below.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: A whoosh, then a dark, ringing synth drone, then some more whooshes.

Availability: Seen on Filmko's earlier productions until the mid 2000s, such as July Rhapsody.

2nd Logo (October 16, 2003-2016)


Visuals: On a starry background, a crystal eight-pointed star with lights surrounding it is seen on the center and rotates to face the screen. The stars fade out and a metallic square fades behind the logo. "FILMKO" in the Century Gothic font and two Chinese characters fade in below.

Variant: In the logo's later years, the CGI is improved and "FILMKO" is in the Lithos font, and the square logo and "FILMKO" would slide in together.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: Same as before.

Audio Variants:

  • On the later variant until The Monkey King 2, the logo is seen silent.
  • In the mid-2010s, the sounds were remade.
Availability: Seen on later Filmko productions, such as The Floating Landscape.
