TORT (Germany)

1st Logo
(1999-2000)

Logo: On a green background a black laser beam reveals the black text "TORT" as the camera shakes a little. After it forms the text, the green background goes away and is replaced by a very quick series of seizure-including flashes and explosions. It finally changes to a black/green iris background. The text turns silver, and the small "PICTURES", also silver, fades in below.

FX/SFX: The beggining is 2D, but as the seizure part begins it all changes to CGI.

Music/Sounds: A blender starting up at the beginning, followed by bangs and explosions and finally a dark ambience sound.

Availability: Scarce. Found on German action movies, although they have a pretty big popularity in said country.

Scare Factor: High. But it's a cool logo if you don't mind the dark content to get you bad dreams.


2nd Logo
(2006-2007)

Logo: On a dark colored background, various outlined shapes form three figures (the infinite sign, the pause icon and an eye), these later would zoom out to the right and form the "TORT" text at the right side.

FX/SFX: Clean 2D animation.

Music/Sounds: A smooth theme with a Wurlitzer and electronic drums.

Availability: Very rare. It was found on German DVD movies from the time, but they only produced 4 at the time and had a lower popularity, so it's not very easy to find.

Scare Factor: None.
