From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Warriors Film Company was a Hong Kong film studio founded by Raymond Wong, Karl Maka, and Dean Shek in 1970. After recieving funding from Golden Princess in 1980 and a deal with them, they renamed themselves to Cinema City Films & Co.

1st Logo (August 30, 1979)

Visuals: On a black background, a white-outlined cartoon man, without a shirt on and filled white pants, is seen coming towards the screen while doing several backflips. After he stops flipping, he moves about a bit and then grabs an invisible ribbon, causing it to transform in a "W" shape that starts off thick, but gets thinner with each stroke. The result freezes and stalls for a second before it moves to the upper left corner, and a white rectangle zooms in to form "WARRIORS FILM CO." just off-center. The background slowly fades to a orange-red color as well during this. A black rectangle then grows to reveal "奮鬥影業公司" in a brush-stroke form above the text, and then "WARRIORS FILM CO." shrinks vertically. Finally, the man kicks out a white ball to below the text, causing it to splatter and form "presents".

Technique: Traditional animation.

Audio: A loud traditional Chinese fanfare.

Availability: This was only seen on their first film, Crazy Partner.

2nd Logo (February 14, 1980)

Visuals: On a black background, the "W" from the 1st logo is drawn in, but without the man holding it, from left to right, followed by a white tube shape around it counterclockwise, and then a registered trademark symbol appears in it. "奮鬥影業公司" then wipes in below in a slightly neater brushstroke style, and then "WARRIORS FILM COMPANY" in a wide white font wipes in below that. "Presents" then appears below.

Technique: Simple wiping effects.

Audio: An action-oriented fanfare.

Availability: This was only seen on their second film, Crazy Crooks.
