appear at the bottom of the screen and zoom toward the camera, flashing once before coming to a stop.

Technique: Cel animation.

Audio: A loud fanfare, which is actually "Blaze of Brass (a)" by Cecil Milner.

Availability: May be seen on the 1980 Tsui Hark film Dangerous Encounters of the First Kind.

2nd Logo (February 19, 1982-November 4, 1983)

Visuals: The logo begins with a segmented orange screen. The orange segments wipe out, revealing a sunset. A white bird appears and flies into the sunset, which turns red and zooms into a red background. We follow the bird flying until the screen zooms out from the red background, revealing it to be a red box. The bird then transforms into a cursive "F" as the company name in Chinese and in English (all in yellow) fades in to the right of the box, sparkling. A small white "o" appears next to the cursive F.

Variant: On The Turning Point, the texts are white.

Technique: Cel animation.

Audio: A stock horn fanfare.

Availability: Seen on Food For the Sharks and The Turning Point.
