Bontonfilm (Czech Republic/Slovakia)

From CLG Wiki


Background: Bontonfilm is a distribution company that releases films onto DVD in the Czech and Slovak Republic markets. The company was founded in 1994 but didn't have a logo until then.

1st Logo (1990s-1997)

Logo: On a black background, we see an explosive star, and the flying disc comes zooming in right past the camera. After it does two more times, a big explosive star explodes, two flying discs zooming in, they are placed as the letter O's as the word reads "BONTON."

FX: The animation.

Music/Sounds: A synth horn fanfare with laser while forming the company name ending with a marimba.

Availability: TBA

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo (1997-2000)

Logo: It's the same as the first logo, but replaced by the film reels. The film reels zoom in close and out, "BONTON" in the same font with the additional word underneath "FILM" and the thin rectangle with three squares inside. The laser shoots on the word "FILM", revealing the Times New Roman italic font inside, film.

FX: Same as the 1st logo.

Music/Sounds: Same as the 1st logo.

Editor's Note: None.

3rd Logo (2000-)

Nickname: "The Running Statue"

Logo: We begin as the logo fades in. We see a third person view of a golden man (similar to the man seen on the Academy Award statue) running on a moving filmstrip. There is a glow coming out of the holes on the filmstrip which makes the background shady white. There is a trapezoid like shape in the distance. The camera pans down towards into the slides to reveal the same scene playing. The camera pans onto the slide again revealing the same scene again except this time the camera zooms back and rotates. The background changes to black and the light rays disappear. As the camera zooms back we now see the text "BONTON" "F I L M S" stacked on top of each other in blue. Red yellow and blue light rays come in to the top left of the logo forming a upside down "Y" like shape as the man disappears and the logo finishes zooming out. Shady white filmstrip edges form and shine on the bottom left and top right of the logo. A bluish white glow forms around the text.

FX: The man running on the filmstrip. The camera zooming and rotating. The formation of the "Y" like shape and the filmstrip edges. The logo glowing. Standard early 00's animation.

Music: An uplifting orchestral piece.

Availability: Seen on films distributed by the company.
