Summertime Entertainment

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Summertime Entertainment was an animation studio that produced only one movie, the 2013 animated film Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return, which, despite a troubled production of eight years, premiered at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival in France on June 14, 2013 before being released in the United States and Canada on May 9, 2014. The studio was founded by Ryan and Roland Carroll, brothers who had previously ran Alpine Pictures, a studio that made several low budget films. Summertime Entertainment had plans to produce two sequels to Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return, as well as a television series based on the film. However, due to the film's poor reception, both critically and financially, those plans were abandoned and the studio and its website were both shut down around 2015. Its Facebook page, however, still remains up as of 2024, though it has not shared any new posts since promotion for the film's home media release in August 2014.

Visuals: On an almost entirely green background of grass and trees, there is a sprinkler in the grass hooked up to a hose and spraying back and forth. A boy cartwheels over the hose, avoiding the sprinkler's spray, but a young girl does get sprayed and screams. She is chased through the sprinkler by a black cairn terrier, which has a near identical design to Toto in the film that comes afterwards. The dog leaves as the lens starts to flare and the white text "Summertime" fades in. The black text "E N T E R T A I N M E N T" zooms in below.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: A fanfare, with the same giggling sound taken from the Electric Entertainment logo, the girl screaming due to being sprayed by the sprinkler, and the terrier barking.

Availability: Was only seen on Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return.
