Universal Focus

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Universal Focus was the short-lived indie film division of Universal Pictures, founded in 1999. It was shut down in 2002 by its merging with USA Films and Good Machine to form Focus Features, its current successor.
