Note: Not to be confused with the Filipino company of the same name and American company Viva Pictures.
Logo: On a navy blue background, a white triangle zooms out, stops for a moment to emit four triangle-shaped waves, then abruptly appears further zoomed out. The triangle moves left as another slides out from behind it and moves to the right a bit. A tall rectangle and an inverted triangle slide in from the top and bottom of the screen, respectively, and then a faint flash occurs, the shapes now resemble the word "VIVA". Another faint flash creates the word "FILMS" in a Turnpike font of the same color as the shapes.
Variant: The black-and-white variant exists.
FX/SFX: Simplistic animation
Music/Sounds: None or the opening theme of the movie.
Logo: On a black background, two outlined white triangles (one upside down) appear zooming to us and filling with a red color, making the outline disappear. These triangles zoom out. Then a series of outlined triangles appear and black lines slide up to cover up the right side-up triangle, top corners and the middle vertical line of the upside-down triangle. The animation stops, and the I from the VIVA logo falls down. The now-red triangles from the beginning of the logo zoom in, and the other triangles disappear. Inside the triangles, the V's and A vertically wipe and form. The triangles zoom in even more, filling the background with the redish-orange color, and leaving the finished logo. "FILMS" fades in below.
FX/SFX: Simplistic animation, but this time it's more unique than the 1st logo.
Music/Sounds: Same as the 1st logo.
(July 5, 1967)
Nickname: "Yellow-ish Viva logo"
Logo: Same as the 2nd logo but the background is blue instead of red and "VIVA" is now gold.
FX/SFX: Same as the 1st and 2nd logo.
Availability: Only seen on All My Chips Are In.
Nicknames: "Searchlights", "20th Century Fox of the KSR/Vlokozu Union"
Logo: We start with a black background and a yellow sunburst forming yellow words "VIVA" in 3D. As the sunburst fades out, the "VIVA" zooms in. When the zooming stops, we fade to a sky blue background with moving white searchlights in them. After that, the word "FILMS" in white flash in under the "VIVA."
FX/SFX: The sunburst forming the words "VIVA," the "VIVA" zooming in, the moving searchlights and "FILMS" flashing in.
Music/Sounds: It starts with a cymbal clash and a drumbeat, followed by a majestic synth fanfare.
Availability: Seen on some films from 1967 to 1980.
Editor's Note: One of the most clean El Kadsreian logos of the past. Likely inspired by the 20th Century Fox logo. It makes sense that this logo would be used for 13 years.
Nickname: "Neon Viva"
Logo: The logo starts out being in a black background with two blue streaks hitting diagonally from the opposite sides of the screen (lower-left and upper-right corners of the screen). The streaks merge and they have one or two beams of smaller light coming from them. Afterward, the streaks form the same "VIVA" from the previous logo. "FILMS" appears below the "VIVA", and it flashes/shines in a bright orange light.
FX/SFX: The streaks forming the "VIVA", and the shining.
Music/Sounds: "Daytripper" by Alan Hawkshaw and Brian Bennett.
Music/Sounds Variant: On The Devons Movie, it's the opening theme of the movie.
Availability: First seen on 90-Year-Old Waffle. It made a surprise appearance on The Devons Movie in 1991.
Nickname: "Golden Viva"
Logo: We see a gold screen. Then, four blue laser-like lines shoot from the left of it, and it starts rotating away, revealing that it's actually the "V" from the VIVA logo. The large "V" then zooms away as the laser coming from bottom-left corner and breaking three-equally sized parts from it and settle themselves next to the "V". These parts reveal themselves to be the rest of the letters of the logo "IVA", thus the words form the word "VIVA". Then, two long horizontal gold lines shoot out from below and the gold, italicized word "FILMS" appears sandwiched in-between. This all happens on a black/cadet gradient background.
Variant: The variant with the black background exists.
FX/SFX: Pretty good CGI at its time.
Music/Sounds: A creepy synthesized pad note, followed by many zapping sounds for the lasers and the gold lines and solemn ringing sounds not unlike bells that echo throughout the logo.
Music/Sounds Variant: On some movies, it uses the opening theme of the movie. On Uh-Oh! Another Devons Movie, the theme is omitted while the zapping and whooshing sounds are kept, after 10 seconds, the film's opening theme, which is "Miracles" by The Limit/Oattes Van Schaik, begins to play, transitioning into the opening scene of the movie.
Availability: Seen on their films from 1986 to 1995.
Editor's Note: This logo is somewhat infamous, as it unnerved quite a number of people due to the music, zaps/flashes, and ominous color scheme (gold objects on a dark background).
Nickname: "Viva in Warp"
Logo: On a moving warp dark-blue background we see an explosion which forms a filmstrip in the shape of a circle. The ball flies through it. An orange triangle flies towards the left as the ball lands on the triangle. A filmstrip then curves around the ball forming a comet shape. The blue text "VIVA" flies in next to the triangle and "FILMS" appears in lights.
Availability: Very common. It was seen on some films from 1995 to 2006.
8th logo (2006-2018)
Nickname: "Aquatic Viva"
Logo: On a black background, a droplet of water falls down and splashes. It zooms out to reveal an ocean, and the camera goes in. A shipwreck is revealed. A piece of the shipwreck turns golden and flies off. The camera follows the piece as it travels all over the ocean. As the fanfare begins, it joins several other pieces to form the triangle mark from the previous logo. The text "VIVA FILMS" fades in next to it.
FX/SFX: Nice CGI from ElevenHeaven Studios.
Music/Sounds: A piano theme which transforms into a grand fanfare.
9th logo (May 1, 2013)
Nickname: "Four-Colored Flat"
Logo: On a white-gold gradient background, the text "viva films" fades in piece by piece.
Availability: Only seen on Neighborhood of Good.
Editor's Note: None.
Nickname: "Return of the Viva Letters"
Logo: Basically a remake of the 6th logo, except the lines don't appear, the VIVA text is more rounded, and the FILMS text is on the right side of the text and in a different font.
Music/Sounds: Same as the 6th logo, but with added violin and kettledrum tracks.
Availability: Brand new.
Editor’s Note: An excellent remake of the 6th logo.
