Logo description and capture by EnormousRat
Background: Our Stories Films was founded by Robert L. Johnson and the Weinstein brothers on July 3, 2006 to produce films for black audiences. The company released only one film through the Weinstein joint venture, Who's Your Caddy?, before becoming independent.
(July 27, 2007) Our Stories Films (2006) Nickname: "The Hotel"
Logo: On a sunny evening, many African-Americans are shown having fun on top of a roof. The camera pans down to reveal a big house. We pan to a window featuring a family eating dinner. We pan down even further to reveal a man and a woman on a romantic date, drinking wine. We go down even further to reveal a red door. A man tickles his children. When this happens, the yellow-brown text:
illuminates from the house. We zoom out to reveal the entire house. Birds fly above it. The sunny sky fades to turn into night. The byline "AN RLJ COMPANY" fades below the logo.
Trivia: One of the kids is Kamilah Meek, who appeared in a cameo on the pilot episode of Victorious.
FX/SFX: Live action with green-screen effects and CGI.
Music/Sounds: A hip-hop tune that gradually turns into a calm piano tune with whooshing sounds, people talking and kids laughing.
Availability: Can be seen on Who's Your Caddy?. The company's only other film, Jumping the Broom, just has an in-credit notice.
Editor's Note: None.
