Makdos is a Russian film studio, which was created from the remnants of KinoMost during the early 2000's.

Logo (2003-?)

Visuals: The sun rises above a mountain chain, and a transparent frame appears in the middle, with a tiger inside, walking towards the camera. The frame is re-drawn several times and the tiger shoots out from the previous frame into where the next frame is drawn, while light threads fly around. We suddenly zoom and tilt into the frame to transition into what appears to be a holed strip made out of gold with the grungy texture, set against a smokey red/orange background. The word "МАКΔОС" (with the Russian letter "Д" appearing as the Greek delta) zooms out into the strip, making two central letters inside, and "КИНОКОМПАНИЯ" ("FILM PRODUCTION COMPANY") appears above while the logo shines.

Technique: A mix of live action and CGI.

Audio: A bell toll from the KinoMost logo followed by the triumphant fanfare.

Availability: Appeared on several TV series (and on DVD's) in Russia, like Стилет (Stylet), МУР есть МУР (MUR is MUR), Театр обреченных (Theater of the Doomed), and Сонька - Золотая Ручка (Sonya Golden Hand).
