Paramount Famous (2009)
Logo: We see the bright light from above, forming the transparent triangle borders and "FAMOUS" word behind them. The clouds appear in background, the triangle moves left and more words fade in light, emitting stars: "Paramount" in its corporate font above and "PRODUCTIONS" below. Then the logo clears out, leaving only background.
FX/SFX: All the animation.
Music/Sounds: A few whooshing sounds when the logo zooms out.
Availability: Very rare. Only a handful of films were made and distributed by the division over roughly two years, such as Road Trip: Beer Pong, Van Wilder: Freshman Year, The Romantics, and Wrong Turn at Tahoe. It first appeared on Without a Paddle: Nature's Calling, and was last seen on Mean Girls 2.
Editor's Note: None.
