From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Mighty Aphrodite Pictures is an American independent film company founded by Jorge Xolalpa Jr. in 2014.

1st Logo (February 27, 2016)

Visuals: A large "M" glows up and the company name, in a stacked format and with "MIGHTY APHRODITE" in FFD Neuland Inline, wipes in from the left. In between them, a tan line fades in. Also happening simultaneously is the burgundy background fading in and slightly dimming. After a few seconds, the "M" fades away and the company name wipes out.

Technique: 2D animation.

Audio: A suspenseful, rising violin track with bass notes at the beginning.

Availability: Only seen on a video from the company titled "Mighty Aphrodite Pictures (2016)".

2nd Logo (February 29, 2016)

Visuals: On a black background, the logo from before is seen with a VHS effect and against a white glow behind it. In between the "M" and company name is a thin, disappearing white line.

Technique: 2D animation.

Audio: An excerpt of "L'Ultima Diligenza Di Red Rock" by Ennio Morricone, best known as the intro soundtrack to The Hateful Eight.

Availability: Seen on the second video from the company titled "Mighty Aphrodite Pictures (2016)".

3rd Logo (February 29, 2016)

Visuals: On a black background, a neon version of the previous logo is shown. "PICTURES" is in a serif font. Three blue, grided, and disappearing bars overlap the logo and text, aligning to the top and bottom of the neon lights. Like the previous logo, it has a VHS effect to it albeit more shaky.

Technique: 2D animation.

Audio: A fast-paced, string soundtrack.

Availability: Seen on the third video from the company titled "Mighty Aphrodite Pictures (2016)".

4th Logo (December 16, 2016)

Visuals: On a white background, a black paint droplet falls and creates multiple splatters on the screen. Several more splotches are formed around the mess until a paint stroke is drawn from the center splat, moving downward and creating another array of splatters. The camera zooms past the set of smears and follow a paint stroke moving in a zig-zag direction. When it stops, it creates a relatively large set of splotches. The camera pans down to follow three falling paint smears and reaches to the droplets. They are all released and creates a large splat behind the company name with "Mighty Aphrodite" in Engravers' Old English BT and "PICTURES" in Times New Roman.

Technique: 2D animation.

Audio: The same music from the 1st logo, although the violin comes in later.

Availability: Only seen on Blue Line Station.

5th Logo (February 9, 2017)

Visuals: Same concept as the previous logos but with a different logo design: the "M" has a white outline, no fill, and is 3D. The company name also has no fill and a white outline with the addition of a white glow. The VHS effect gives the logo a purple-blue glow and has it briefly flash at random times. Plus, transparent white shapes are seen absorbing portions of the logo while still flashing.

Technique: 2D animation.

Audio: The opening theme of the series.

Availability: Only seen on Strangelove.

6th Logo (October 6, 2018-July 15, 2019)

Visuals: On a white background, an altered version of the logo from the 1st logo is shown with the company name split in two different fonts: Times New Roman and Impact, the latter of which is used for "PICTURES". The logo is against a distorted, wavy texture consisting of fly-like objects.

Technique: 2D animation.

Audio: None or the opening theme of the film.

Availability: Seen on Sweet Caroline and #SORRYNOTSORRY.

7th Logo (January 23, 2020)

Visuals: The 1st Prism Entertainment plays albeit with a distorted VHS effect. When the second to last line passes the prism, the section underneath the triangle is blacked out and replaced with the company name in an adventure-like font.

Technique: 2D animation.

Audio: Same as the 1st Prism Entertainment logo.

Availability: Only seen on Your Iron Lady.
