1st Logo
(September 28, 2001)
VH1 Films<embed allowfullscreen="true" height="180" src="http://wikifoundrytools.com/wiki/closinglogos/widget/youtubevideo/3accddc7bb1f964528717b98215939b40c343c75" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="218" wmode="transparent"/>

Logo: On a white background we see pulsing circles quickly zooming in, which pans left and shines to form the 1994-1998 VH1 channel logo with "Music First" (the slogan from 1994-2003) below. Next to it we see the word "FILMS" in a narrow upper-case font, fading in next to the logo.

FX/SFX: The pulsing circles, the shining of the VH1 logo and the "FILMS" text fading in.

Music/Sounds: The opening theme of the movie.

Availability: Appeared exclusively on Zoolander.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo
(November 4, 2006)

Nicknames: "Cubeless Silver VH1 Logo", "Disco Island", "The VH1 Island", "VH1 Of Steel"

Logo: We move across the sunset sea and stop upon the island where the giant VH1 Films logo, consisting of the 2003-2013 VH1 Network logo (without its cube) with the large word "FILMS" next to it, stands. A human figure moves below, opens the small door in the logo (where the blue light beams) and walks there.

FX/SFX: Great animation.

Music/Sounds: A somber organ/piano tune, changing to disco music when the door opens, then back. After the door closes, there is a brief orchestral flourish that sounds similar to the 1999 Warner Bros. Pictures logo theme.

Availability: Appeared exclusively on Totally Awesome.

Editor's Note: None.
