Background

Affirm Films was formed in 2008 by Sony Pictures Entertainment to release gospel and inspirational films on DVD like News Corp.'s Fox Faith. Prior to its launch, Columbia released several inspirational films. Its last recent gospel film under Sony before the launch of Affirm Films was the 2007 film Facing the Giants, released by Destination Films and Samuel Goldwyn Films.

Nickname: "The Heavenly Sky"

Next to it is "FILMS" in Times New Roman in black. Below is the byline "A Sony Pictures Entertainment Company" in the same color and font as "FILMS".

FX/SFX: The simple fade in and fade out of the logo.

2nd Logo (September 23, 2010- )

Nickname: "The Heavenly Sky II"

Logo: We see the screen full of clouds, which then clear out to reveal the cloud background from the 1993 Columbia Pictures logo with the heavenly lights shining around it. Then the words "AFFIRM FILMS" in the same font as before and cut-out, zoom out leaving the background inside the text. As the logo settles, the logo changes into its same style from before, except it's in CGI and the lights fade out. The byline appears under "FILMS".
