Nicknames: "Little Girl Beating a Drum", "Little Drummer Girl".

Logo: We move out from a bush to see a group of people walking down a street with giraffes walking near them. The picture zooms out in an iris-out-like effect, as a drumstick taps on the circle and makes it flash. The picture zooms out and disappears as it's revealed to be in the inside of a snare drum, being beaten by a little girl (Georgia Rock) with a blank expression. The girl continues to bang the drum as "MANDATE PICTURES" slides underneath her, and the picture freezes to the last note of the music.

Trivia: This was designed by Prologue.

Variant: There is a closing print version, used on Whip It.

FX/SFX: Mostly live-action.

Music/Sounds: A steady drumbeat playing over a mellow soundtrack, with birds chirping during the first part of the logo.

Availability: Common. It appears on films from the company, such asMr. Magorium's Wonder Emporiumand The Strangers. It debuted onStranger Than Fiction, and last appeared on Paradise

Scare Factor: Low, the drumbeats and the girl may make one a little scared.
