: "Greetings from Lost", "Creepy Jester II"

Logo: On a black background, we see a black timeboard showing 11:59 in white. Then it changes to 12:00 in red. It begins to quickly flip through red and white digits, splitting into three changing time boards in the process as an image of the jester in the background. The time boards shift into one line, showing RED HOUR FILMS under the image of the jester.

FX/SFX: Animation of the board.

Music/Sounds: A synthesizer piece with ticking sounds in the background, or the opening theme.

Availability: Was seen on Blades of Glory and The Ruins.

Editor's Note: The logo is so dark that the face almost literally disappears.

Nickname: "The Jester"

Logo: A red card is spinning, depicting through flipbook animation the jester, in silhouette, doing tricks and catching a staff. After a few moments, the card stops still with the picture of the jester walking with the staff behind. The words RED and HOUR are seen in red and in the Rockwell Extra Bold typeface, fade in on the top and bottom of the card respectively.

FX/SFX: The card spinning and flipbook animation.

Variant: There also exists a sped up version. This was seen on TV shows from the company.

Trivia: This logo was designed by Prologue.

Music/Sounds: Card flipping sounds. For the sped up version, the end theme of the show. On Zoolander 2, we hear the opening theme of the movie.

Availability: Currently seen on Tropic Thunder, 30 Minutes or Less, and The Big Year. It most recently appeared on Zoolander 2.

Editor's Note: None.
