Background

Started by Raylan D. Jensen and Clair Farley.


1st logo(1980-1984?)

Jensen Farley Pictures (1981)

Logo: On a light blue background, the words "PRESENTED THROUGH" on the top and the words "JENSEN FARLEY PICTURES, INC." zoom out from the viewer in a streak-like manner.

FX/SFX: Zooming out of the words.

Music/Sounds: Silent.

Availability: Probably extinct. Was seen on older prints of Private Lessons. Newer releases of said film, such as on the Lionsgate DVD, do not feature this logo intact.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo (198?-1983)

Jensen Farley Pictures 1983 (A)Jensen Farley Pictures 1983 (B)

Logo: On a blue background, we see an abstract shape, sparkling and zoom towards us. It then morphs into a line, and then into a abstract filmstrip "J", while flashing three times. After the third flash, another filmstrip grows out of the "J", forming an abstract "JF". Then the logo shifts to the left, while the words "JENSEN FARLEY PICTURES, INC." slide out from the right of the logo. Once the logo and words stop in place, the logo flashes twice (the word "PRESENTS" flashes in below the words at the same time of the logo's second flash). Then the words and logo shine and sparkle.

FX/SFX: Zooming in, flashing, sparkling, shining.

Music/Sounds: A bombastic fanfare. Sometimes, it is silent.

Availability: Ultra rare. Usually deleted or plastered with other distributor logos on newer prints, although it has resurfaced on the Synapse Films DVD & Blu-Ray of Curtains (including the theatrical trailer). Could be found on old video copies of Madman and Joysticks, among others. It might've also been seen on the theatrical release of The Last Unicorn, but the 1989 J2 Communications VHS, the 1993 Family Home Entertainment VHS, and the 2004 Artisan/FHE DVD all plaster this with the ITC Entertainment logo, while newer prints have no logo at all.

Editor's Note: None.
