Background

This was a production company ran by Dan Halsted with support from director Oliver Stone, formed in 1995. No on-screen logo was used until 1996. The company went under in 1999 and Halsted went on to create Halsted Pictures, which would later get rebranded to Camelot Pictures.

Logo: On a black background, a blue oblong shape, resembling a pair of sunglasses, slides in from the left of the screen. Upon getting to the opposite side, the shape tilts down as a blue frame containing what looks to be a fruit zooms back. Beneath the frame is the word "ILLUSION" in a stylized font. The background brightens as the logo zooms back and remains on screen for a few more seconds.

FX/SFX: The shape and zooming.

Music/Sounds: A descending clicking sound, along with the sound of wind blowing (which is a part of the opening theme of the film.), otherwise it's silent or has the finishing theme playing over it.

Availability: Appeared at the start of Freeway, the end of U-Turn and the documentary The Last Days of Kennedy and King. This doesn't appear on the company's first film Nixon, and while Halsted helped co-produce many of Stone's films his company was never credited.
