Logo (February 14, 2008-June 8, 2015)

Visuals: There is a train's light, moving, before the train shows, the train appears, another train is seen, they pass by. Then a shimmering red arrow with "КРАСНАЯ СТРЕЛА" below appears as everything slowly fades to black. The logo flashes for a bit before turning flat.


  • On some of the films, it cuts to black before the logo itself appearing instead of slowly fading.
  • On Hipsters, the logo fades out early.
  • On Angels of Revolution, the logo is still, and the text (which is white in this variant) reads "КИНОКОМПАНИЯ «КРАСНАЯ СТРЕЛА»".

Technique: CGI animation.

Audio: A bombastic truimphant fanfare accompanied by sounds of the trains' engines and wheels.
