Film Producers Agency (Poland)

From CLG Wiki

1st Logo (1984-1985)

Logo: On a black background, a blue rectangle wipes in downward as lime green lines appear in a fanning position on it. Two more lime green lines draw in to form a border from each side of the screen. An elongated blue parallelogram, with an "a" cut into it, slides in from the left side of the screen, followed by one with an "p" emerging from the blue rectangle, and another one, but taller and having an "f" in it, emerging from the top. They all settle into place on the left side of the screen as the "f" turns white and "Agencja Producentów Filmowych" wipes into the right of it in a white computerized font. "SILESIA-FILM", with the first letter of the words being taller than the rest, then slides in below the border and rests just under the "APF" logo. "KATOWICE" appears below as well as a small "sk" bug in the rectangle. Everything then disappears, only to have the "APF" logo to appear in the center of the screen along with "WARSZAWA" below it in lime green.

FX/SFX: The animation of the rectangle, the logos forming.

Music/Sounds: An electronic "ding" can be heard after the lines are finished animating. Silence is then heard before the "SILESIA-FILM" text finishes sliding in, in which the sounds of a digital typewriter, a UFO-like whirling sound, then finally another "ding".

Availability: Extremely rare. Was seen on Polish tape prints of Omega Entertainment titles co-released with Silesia Film.

Editor's Note: Pretty obvious that the logo was made with an old computer, like a Commodore VIC-20. Plus, why does the "f" turn white?

2nd Logo (1986-1989)

Logo: On a black background, a red parallelogram with "zespół VIDEO" on it, as well as 3 white lines below it spins into view and rests above the center, just off-center. A blue parallelogram then flies in with an off-center black "a" on it. Another one flies in as well, but a bit longer and having a "p" in it instead. Finally, a tall one with a white "f" flies in as well, completing the "apf" logo. It flies up to the upper left corner as"AGENCJA PRODUCENTÓW FILMOWYCH" types in beside it. Below it, contact information is typed in below, along with"FILM PRODUCERS AGENCY". The warning screen then flies in before waiting a few seconds and then wiping to a plain blue background via a clock wipe before fading out.

FX/SFX: The parallelograms flying around.

Music/Sounds: 3 xylophone notes when the first 3 parts of the logo settle, ending with a gong on the last piece. A bell can also be heard for the warning flying in. The rest is just silence.

Availability: Extremely rare. About the same packaging barring the Silesia Film text.

Editor's Note: It's really a dated-looking thing, and it's still very simplistic. Also, the "f" is still white.

3rd Logo (1990-1993)

Logo: On a space background, several periwinkle letters scroll all over the screen. They then zoom out to reveal its name "AGENCJA PRODUCENTÓW FILMOWYCH" in a tall sans font. 4 pink squares then zoom out one by one to the 4 corners of the screen before changing shape and color to be similar to the previous logo, but with a red segmented parallelogram above the other ones, which are now blue. As this happens, the name then zooms to the top of the screen and the 3 letters zoom out to their respective places, with the first 2 being blue but changing to black and the last one rotating to place. "FILM PRODUCERS AGENCY" (the official English translation of the name) then slides up in the same font and color as the top text, with "zespół VIDEO" appearing in the red parallelogram above and the address and contact information below.

FX/SFX: The text moving, the logo forming.

Music/Sounds: A funky, yet cheap, jazz tune.

Availability: Very rare. Seen on the roughly the same type of titles, but mostly with boxes that mostly have red and white bordering.

Editor's Note: Much better animation around, though it's kinda simplistic, and the "f" is still white.
