From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


LD Entertainment (formerly known as Liddell Entertainment until 2011) is an independent movie production and distribution studio based in Los Angeles. It was founded by Mickey Liddell in 2007 after he left Berlanti-Liddell Productions last year and the former changed his company name to Berlanti Television (later Berlanti Productions).

1st Logo (January 18, 2009- )

Visuals: There are some shots of a herd of animated, highly brush-effect horses running. The first one focuses on their legs, the second shows more of the horses' bodies, and the third focuses on the herd from the distance. They leave some smoke, which clears and reveals an abstract "LD" lying on the ground. Then "ENTERTAINMENT" fades in below. The ground is heavily stomped by horseshoe marks.


  • On The Grey, the logo is shortened to the last seconds.
  • On The Collector, the finished product is grayscale and appears bigger.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: The sounds of a stampede and a majestic, triumphant fanfare. A later version has a softer and less intense fanfare.

Availability: Seen on Biutiful, The Collector, The Details, Silent House and other upcoming films.

2nd Logo (February 19, 2016- )

Visuals: It starts off similarly to the previous logo, but when the herd of horses leave smoke behind their path, the smoke zooms in. The "LD" from the previous logo, now in gold, emerges from it, and the smoke fades away. A light surrounds the "D". The word "ENTERTAINMENT" wipes right as the logo zooms in.

Variant: On Crush, the animation is shortened to just the logo zooming in.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: Same as before, but the fanfare is shortened.

Audio Variant: On Jackie, the fanfare is replaced by "Till It's Gone" from Yelawolf.

Availability: Seen on Judy, We're the Racers, Fast Color, Risen, The Biggest Little Farm, among others. It is being used in tandem with the previous logo.
