This company, Also known as The Oz Film Manufacturing Company, produced silent films, most notably the Oz series. Every one of them has bombed commercially. The movies they make has various colors and custom theme's playing over it, like in silent films.
Princess Ozma, The Grandmother of all Nightmare logos, BND's Younger sister, V for Vivian (add more here)
On a black background, we see a woman (silent film actress Vivian Reed, see "Trivia") wearing two flowers and a crown-like object on her forehead with a Z inside a circle (obviously the company name) with a few loose curls hanging down, apparently supposed to be Princess Ozma from the book series. She looks around the screen and smiles. No obvious indication of the name of the company is shown and it only appears on the title card of the movie.
Music/Sounds: None, or a violin tune.
The logo including the film has been shown in gray, red, yellow, blue, green and purple tones.
The logo also featured the woman's head in a close-up, to the point where her head almost covers the entire screen. Her loose curls are also missing.
There has been a shorter version spotted where it just shows her looking around the screen for about 4 seconds. This variant is mostly at the end of the films.
The Patchwork Girl of Oz close-up variant lasts only 2 seconds, due to skips through the logo, which is a result of the film deterioration.
If you look closely at the Ozma Head, the body of the Ozma Head is shown.
Cheesy Factor Edit
This logo is very old, as evidenced by the scratchy prints.
Scare Factor Edit
Original Version: Medium to nightmare. The rather cold, lifeless stare of Vivian may creep and freak some people out. The music that accompanies the logo on some of the films may also add to the scare factor, along with the old film scratches. This is also for people who don't like old logos.
"Close-up" Variant: Nightmare. The "in-your-face" style of the logo is bound to scare many people that were expecting the normal variant. Not to mention that this variant is usually silent.
However, it is high to nightmare for James The Red Engine.
Did you know?Edit
