1st Logo

(1986 - 2006)

Nicknames: "ポール in the Box", "The Box in Space 

Logo: On the dark space background with stars slowly zooms in, the yellow rectangle with its top right folded zooms out, leaving the trail behind it. The green rectangle then does the same thing where the yellow rectangle did. The words "Paora" (written in Japanese) flashes then zooms in for the second. Then, the skinny green rectangle draws around the logo then the logo fills with white. 

Variants:

  • In some films made by Paora Pictures during the period, the logo is blue instead of green. 
  • Depending on the film quality, the film might appear as scratchy. 
  • The 16.9 format has the brighter space background. 

FX/SFX/Cheesy Factor: The effects look primitive, even by its time.

Music/Sounds: A loud "whoosh" is heard as the rectangle zooms out, followed by a dark, creepy synth-line that turns into a cool techno theme, accompanied by the synthesized windchime sound.

Availability: Rare. Can be seen in all Paora Pictures movies from 1986 to 2006.

Scare Factor: Medium to high. The jarringly loud "whoosh" at the beginning can catch one off-guard. The synth tune and dark bg don't help either, but the techno riff sort of turns the setting from dark and creepy to upbeat and futuristic, in a loose definition of the word.

2nd Logo

(2006 - 2010)Nicknames: "ポール in the Box II", "The Box in the Ocean"

Logo: On the sunset ocean background, The box from the previous logo fades in while spinning into 360 degrees. The text "Paora Pictures" then zooms out and rotates until it's on the top of the logo. "Presents" does the same except it stops at the bottom of the logo.

FX/SFX: The rectangle rotating and The text spinning. CGI effects.

Cheesy Factor: This logo will go off the charts. The logo is cheap and it looks like it was outdated. The ocean background looks like it was stolen from Mokran Video. It looks like people doesn't have enough time or money to make the professional logo after the previous logo.

Music/Sounds: The piano/violin theme.

Availability: Uncommon. Can be seen in all films make by Paora Pictures from 2006 to its dismissal by El TV Kadsre in 2010.

Scare Factor: Minimal. The logo would be beautiful-looking but you might get surprised when you first see it.
