Background: A24 is an American film distribution, production, and finance company formed in 2012 by marketing and distribution veterans Daniel Katz, David Fenkel, and John Hodges. Their first film was released the next year.
(February 8, 2013-)
Logo: On a retro-style black background, a white stripe flies down diagonally splitted into red, green, and blue color channels. This is followed by a horizontal stripe and a vertical stripe, both of which fly in next to the diagonal one. A circle and a semicircle slide out on top of the horizontal stripe, and several thin lines fly and drawn in near the shapes, forming the text "A24". The logo remains on-screen before folding away.
Variants: There was a prototype variant of this logo where the animation is much different--it eventually went unused. The logo begins on a shaky black screen for a few moments before several shapes flash on the screen in multiple colors in timing with the 3-note melody and then quickly back away in white. The shapes float for a moment before they fold out, revealing that they are "A24", before breaking apart in the style of the movie logo's formation. On Mid 90s, the logo is shown in live-action, formed via several skateboards on some pavement and shot at an angle. A few characters then run and walk over it. On the trailer for Climax, the logo is shown on a TV.
FX/SFX: The sliding of the shapes, the background.
Music/Sounds: None, or the opening theme of the movie.
Music/Sounds Variants: The original Vimeo version of this logo uses a musical bed with synthesizers and cellos. This has not been reportedly seen on any of the company's films. The rejected prototype featured a 8-bit chiptune theme, accompanied by some sliding and clicking sounds.
Availability: Seen on all films from the company starting with A Glimpse in the Mind of Charles Swan III.
Editor’s Note: This is an interesting logo to go with A24’s amazing filmography.
