1st Logo

(December 14, 1979-August 9, 1985)

Nickname: "The Lake"

Logo: On a black background, we see a circle containing a picture of the hills and mountains of Aspen, Colorado zooming out. It zooms out further into a rectangle, and after it stops, the words "Aspen Film Society" fade in below the circle.

FX/SFX: None or the zoom out

Music/Sounds: None, the closing theme of the movie or a whoosh.

Availability: Seen on The Jerk, The Man with Two Brains, Pee-wee's Big Adventure and other films.

Editor's Note: None

2nd Logo

(March 4, 1988-September 15, 1989)

Nicknames:"The Lake II", "Lake Filmstrip"

Logo: Same as the previous logo but only this time it zooms out into a filmstrip shining as its moving to the left and then the words "ASPEN FILM SOCIETY" fade in but this time the words are in a perwinkle color and then the byline reading "A Division of WILLIAM E McEUEN PRODUCTIONS"

Variant: On The Big Picture the logo lacks the byline

FX/SFX: Same as the previous logo except for the shining and the filmstrip

Music/Sounds: None

Availability: Seen only on two films Pulse (not the 2001 Japanese movie of the same name nor the 2006 American remake of the Japanese film) and The Big Picture. This is not seen on Cold Dog Soup.
