1st logo

(1945-1967)

Peringatan

Nickname: “Java Island from Hell”

Logo: On a black background, we see a spiral zap zooming out to the bottom of the screen to reveal a fastly-panning oat valley. The oat valley then pans to the center of the screen, to reveal a gold background with a white sun. Seconds later, a grid with the map of Indonesia panning in to the right thrice appears, when the sun grows bigger and bigger leaving only white background. The background then turns black and flashes, and we stop on the Java island, and we zoom out spinning slowly to the red scheme of the island, which undeniably is the Special Region of Yogjakarta. It then explodes and then dissapears, leaving only a series of comets zapping right at us, and once it's done, the oat valley returns with the text of the company with their letters unfolding line by line. The PT then unfolds again, and then it's set on a space background, with the name of the company flashing in an extreme close up appearing with fire in it's borders for a second. Two neon stars then move from both up and down sides of the screen, all of which form a gray-bordered chutney-red star. The logo then explodes twice with some bright lights, bordering all over the screen, when the whole logo has strobe lights. When it's finished strobing and the explosions are done, the logo then flashes 7 times, with the logo zooming out quickly to make space for "Mempersembahkan" on white to appear with a line. The logo then zooms in at you, leaving only black background.

Trivia: Not only one, but 82 people literally made this sequence so quickly, 32 minutes and 14 seconds to be exact. This was made with traditional animation and the effects were made with very old unused brushes. It was also the very first logo done in xerography animation, witch is to eliminate the hand-inking stage in the animation process by printing the animator's drawings directly to the cels. 

FX/SFX: Everything in this logo, all in excellent and somewhat fast animation. You could tell that this was done in xerography animation.

Music/Sounds: A loud somewhat-loud zap, which preceeds a loud explosion, some beepings, which transition into a very dramatic and suspensive music, accompanied by zaps, whooshes and paper sounds. An descending synth sound is heard on the music, and it jarringly cuts to a very loud explosion (a la Multivision Video), accompanied by some beeps and ascending-descending cacophony of synths. An eagle screech is heard when the text "Mempersembahkan" appears.

Availability: Rare. Seen on their children’s films from the time. It’s also seen on Indonesian dubs of Toei movies. Most of their films are owned by the Jakarta company Perfini and don’t have this logo, but some films still kept this logo intact however. If you don’t the logo on current prints of there films, check out older VHS releases of those films, they will have this logo intact as well.

Editor’s Note: The company made children films, but, THIS IS NOT SUTABLE FOR CHILDREN AT ALL! All the nature of the logo is bound to spook someone unstable with fast logos, along with the fast pace of the logo and the unintentional nature. It's even more weird is that the company released kids movies and Toei releases on television - and they were many people obligated to make this sequence, that this would undeniably scare many Indonesian children, and that what makes this logo popular to this day. It can still give a lot of older people who watched their when they were little nightmares to this day, especially it’s hellish island it has. A documentary about this logo is coming soon!

2nd Logo

(1967-1972)

Logo: On a black background, we see a painting of an Egyptian-style pyramid in a desert during the daytime inside a rounded rectangle. Below it is the text "P. T. Peringatan Films" in yellow Georgia Bold font.

Trivia: This was based on the 1951-1981 Cairo Pictures logo.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: A portion of Handel's "Water Music", the opening theme to the movie, or none.

Availability: Extremely rare. Plastered by a Cairo logo most of the time, but like the previous logo, older VHS releases kept this logo intact.

Editor’s Note: Because of the much more calm atmosphere, this logo is a lot less scarier and won’t even scare children, because it’s their target audience, but it’s not as popular and memorable as the previous logo is.
