Senthur Films

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Logo (February 6, 1970-February 21, 1974)

Visuals: The sequence starts on a shore with a little temple. The camera moves to a bigger temple, which is closer to the beach (Thiruchendur Murugan Temple). Then, we appear in a different position. There is some words in Tamil above the entry, indicating the name of the temple. This time, we appear inside the temple, and we see the doors opening to a room. Inside it, there is a lot of candles all around it, of different sizes, and a big support where Murugan is below an arch. The camera zooms to the figure of the God, and then there is the arms of two girls (one on the left, and the other on the right of the statue) throwing petals. Finally, two texts appear: "செந்தூர்" ("Senthur"), which appears on the top left of the screen; and "பிலிம்ஸ்" ("Films"),on the top right. Both texts appear with a slow blur effect left-to-right.

Variant: On Tiger Thathatachari, the the logo begins at the temple.

Technique: All live action, and the texts with the name of the company.

Audio: A melody with a tanpura in the beach portion, a hit of a drum as soon as the door opens followed by a religious hymn sung by a man and another hit of a drum towards the end.

Availability: Seen on Dharisanam and Tiger Thathatachari.
