1st Logo (2010-2012?)

Visuals: The screen zooms out on some kind of tunnel on a black background that reveals to be a grindstone, in form of an "O" which is grinding the letter "n", other letters form, which end up revealing the word "Grindstone", with "Grind" in an orange color and "Stone" in a grey color, with the white words "Entertainment Group" below. The grindstone stops grinding the "n", and after that is that it formed some kind of yellow spark.

Technique: CGI.
