AVM-Chitramala Combines (1972)
Nickname: "Indian Rotating Camera", "On 1970's Indian movies, Camera pictures you!" Revue's Indian Cousin

Logo: We see two reels, and "ஏவி.எம் -சித்ராமாலா" (AVM - Chitramala). At the time that the camera zooms out the reels, the text zooms in, and we can see clearly that the reels are part of a film camera. Then, at the time the camera rotates 90 degrees (showing us the frontal part of this), there's a zoom to the camera. Finally, "கம்பைன்ஸ்" ("Combines") appears below the focus of the camera.

FX/SFX: The zooms out, the camera turning and the texts. Live action.

Music/Sounds: A repetitive note made by a bass, a strum with a kind of lyra when the camera rotates and a 5-note dramatic fanfare made by a trumpet when the second text appears, being the first and the last larger than the other three.

Availability: Seen only on <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1zeVj2EKlO8" target="_self">Sudarum Sooravaliyum</a>.

Editor's Note: The darkness of the logo, the several zooms and the rotation of the camera and the dramatic fanfare, in addition to the final position and quite creepy design of the camera, can scare some. This logo is a direct rival of "Rotating Camera" from Revue.
