Adam's Dream Logos 2.0 - Adam's Closing Logos - Dream Logos Wiki

1st Logo (1982-1988)

Logo: Same as the MTM Enterprises logo, but "PRODUCTIONS, INC." is replaced by "FILMS, INC.".

Variant: From 1982 to 1984, the logo was still.

FX/SFX: Same as the parent company's logo. None for the variant.

Availability: Extremely rare. This was a "placeholder" logo.


2nd Logo (1988-1993)

Nickname: "CGI Mimsie"

Logo: On a black BG, we see tons of orange shards flying in. As we zoom out, the shards form into a CGI rendition of Mimsie the Cat, with the MTM wordmark (in gold) below. When they move into place, the word "FILMS" (in white Peignot font) fades in below the MTM wordmark. When the logo is formed, a spotlight appears below the logo.

FX/SFX: The CGI used to compose most of the animation in the logo. It fits well for the late 80s and early 90s.

3rd Logo (1993-1998)

Nickname: "The Filmstrip"

Logo: Against a black background, we see the CGI Mimsie model from the previous logo with spotlights shining across it. Then, a filmstrip comes in from the left side of the screen, flying toward Mimsie. The camera pans toward the filmstrip as it bounces off the right side of Mimsie's head. It then flies off to the bottom left of the screen, revealing a silver MTM wordmark. It zooms slowly toward the camera as "FILMS" in white Peignot font fades in below.

FX/SFX: The zooming of Mimsie, the words and particles.

A lens flare shines on the logo, which dies down as the camera pans upward. The logo slowly zooms in.
