Multimedia Motion Pictures

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Multimedia Motion Pictures was a division of Multimedia Entertainment that specialized in made-for-TV movies. It was created in 1991 after Multimedia, Inc. acquired the assets of Orbis Communications on September 17. Most of the company's library is today owned by NBCUniversal Television, except for Deadly Matrimony, Desperate Rescue: The Cathy Mahone Story and Donato and Daughter which are owned by ITV Studios Global Entertainment via World International Network/Hamdon Entertainment.

Logo (November 11, 1991-October 15, 1995)

Visuals: On a blue marble background, there is a gold version of the emblem featured in the Multimedia Entertainment logos, extrusioned to look tri-dimensional, zooming out. Under it is the words “MULTIMEDIA” and “MOTION PICTURES” in 3D, both casting a shadow over the marble background. The logo is placed above the middle of the word “MULTIMEDIA”.
