Blinding Edge Pictures

From CLG Wiki

Background: Blinding Edge Pictures is the production company of writer and director M. Night Shyamalan, whose full name is Manoj Nelliyattu Shyamalan.

1st Logo (November 22, 2000)

Logo: We see a profile of a flying man zooming out to the sun. There the sun forms a rectangle, saving lens flare outside. The profile of the flying man is now seen over the rectangle, and below BLINDING EDGE PICTURES is written in italics. The whole logo is tinted light blue.

FX/SFX: The light effects in the logo.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Seen only on Unbreakable.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo (August 2, 2002-June 4, 2015)

Logo: It's basically the same logo as before, but now in white colors, and the name is in a normal font. The light effects are used against a dirty brown background.

Trivia: This logo was designed by Shine Studios, which also created the Harpo Films and the 2012 MGM logos. The video of it can be seen here.

Variant: There is a variant with the man moving on a zoetrope, before reaching the sun and the rest of the logo moves normally.

FX/SFX: The light effects.

Music/Sounds: None, or the opening theme of the movie

Availability: Seen on every film by M. Night Shyamalan from Signs to After Earth. Last seen on the fourth episode of the miniseries Wayward Pines.

Editor's Note: None.

3rd Logo (June 11, 2015-July 23, 2015)

Logo: We see a man (much like Inspector Gadget) backing us while facing a giant orange circle and multiple lens flares and circular rainbows. At the other half of the screen below, it's a plain black BG reads "BLINDING EDGE PICTURES".

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme to Wayward Pines.

Availability: Only seen on the short lived miniseries Wayward Pines starting from episode 5.

Editor's Note: Some may be very upset with the trippy, psychedelic nature the lens flares are making, while this is more of an eye feast than a scary logo.

4th Logo (September 11, 2015- )

Logo: We see a black eagle flying away from the camera in some sort of fog. Then we see a mannequin type of woman with a mask on in the background. The eagle flies towards the woman and stops when it reaches her chest, revealing BLINDING EDGE PICTURES below. The woman then grabs the eagle and smiles. The whole logo is tinted brown.

FX/SFX: The fog, the eagle, and the woman smiling.

Music/Sounds: None, or the opening theme of the movie.

Availability: Brand new. It debuted on The Visit and is most likely to be seen on future M. Night Shyamalan films.

Editor's Note: None.
