Logo description and capture by Logophile


Background: JW Productions is the second production company of producer Jerry Weintraub.



(February 14, 1997- )

Logo: It begins with old black & white footage of a movie set, complete with cast and crew, camera and boom. The camera eases in slowly, then a black background with
JW Productionsan etching of "JW" with the letters conjoined, and "PRODUCTIONS" fades in. Then Jerry Weintraub's signature, in red, fades in, in front of the "JW". As it does this, "PRODUCTIONS" turns white.

Variant: On The Karate Kid, the movie set footage is sepia-toned.

FX/SFX: Live footage, along with the fading in of the logo and Mr. Weintraub's signature.

Music/Sounds: It begins with some violins, then it goes into a lush horn piece. Throughout the logo and the music, it begins with people talking, then as the logo fades in, a bell rings, then a sound of a clapboard and then the director says "Action!" when the signature fades in. It was silent on Ocean's Thirteen and on The Karate Kid, the closing theme of the film was used.

Availability: Seen on films produced by JW Productions. Notable films include Vegas Vacation, Soldier, The Avengers, the Ocean's series and The Karate Kid.

Scare Factor: Low, the people talking, the bell and the director shouting "Action!" might scare a few, but the music is very peaceful and calming.
