: Focus Features is the current indie/art house film subsidiary of Universal Pictures, which was formed in 2002 by the merging of USA Films, Universal Focus and Good Machine, and specializes in independent and foreign films.

1st Logo
(Early 2002, February 6, 2009)

Focus Features (1998)

: On a black background, one by one, we see a light revealing each of the five letters of the text "F O C U S", with the "O" blurred out a bit, and under it is "FEATURES", all in white. The light emits a shadow behind the logo of what it just revealed.

FX/SFX: The light revealing the logo.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Can be seen on very early Focus Features movies like the subtitled print of the French film 8 Women. Made a surprise appearance at the end of Coraline.

Scare Factor: None.

2nd Logo
(2002- )
Focus FeaturesFocus Features (2003, Widescreen)Focus Features International

Nickname: "The Particles", "Focus Zoom"

: We see some yellow, green and blue circles zooming in and out very slow, then the words "F O C U S" and "FEATURES", in the same style as before, fades in, only that now the text is yellow. The "O" is still blurred out.

Trivia: This logo was made by DevaStudios, Inc.

  • For international releases, "INTERNATIONAL" would be shown under "FEATURES." At the end of some movies the print logo is used.
  • On the American release of The World's End, the animation is slowed down in order to plaster the Universal Pictures logo.

FX/SFX: The circles zooming, the text fading.

Music/Sounds: None, the opening theme of the movie, or some string notes accompanied by children laughing and birds twittering.

Availability: Can be seen on films by Focus Features, like Brokeback Mountain, Prime, and Blockparty.

Scare Factor: None.

LogoFan121092 Preceded by Universal logo on earlier films? 0 Oct 13 2010, 2:37 PM EDT by LogoFan121092

On the DVD of "Sylvia" (2003) that we have to watch for IB Senior English, the 1997 Universal logo precedes the Focus Features logo. Is this how most early Focus films started, or was that maybe supposed to be like the de-facto home entertainment logo or something?
