Background

Tripictures is a movie distribution company founded in 1987 in Madrid, Spain. This company focuses on the distribution of high-profile films (The Princess Bride being its first successful feature) and home videos. In 2006, it was purchased by the media group Vocento.

1st Logo (1987-1990's)

TriPictures (1989) Nicknames: "Silver Ball", "Segmented Ball", "The T-Ball"


Logo: On a blue background, two silver hemispheres zoom out: the one above is fully formed whilst the one below is parted in two halves. Between them is a horizontal blank space. The overall set turns to reveal a sphere with a T-shaped blank space. As the sphere turns, these words come from the right:

T R I PICTURES

The now finished logo shines.

FX/SFX: Late '80s state-of-the-art CGI.

Music/Sounds: Generally silent, though sometimes a mellow flute-driven jingle with synths plays.

Availability: Uncommon. Can be see on Spanish films on VHS such as The Princess Bride.

Editor's Note: TBA


2nd Logo (Late 1990s?- )

Tripictures

Nicknames: "Silver Ball II", "Segmented Ball II"

Logo: As we start on a starfield, the logo zooms in like in the previous logo, but more elaborate. The glowing sphere rotates on the screen, when the name "TRIPICTURES" is wiped below, now in one word.

FX/SFX: Better quality animation of the sphere.

Music/Sounds: Starting with the dark whoosh sound of the flying parts, then the short orchestral plays and ends with the piano note.

Availability: Common on a lot of Spanish DVDs and television prints of movies distributed by this company; and easy to find in that country.
