1st Logo
(April 11, 2003-August 14, 2009)
Walden Media - CLG WikiWalden Media (2006) - ClosingWalden Media (2008)

Nicknames: "The Flipping Stone", "The Skipping Stone"

Logo: In a lake with hills and trees behind it, a flipping stone hits the water three times with a trail, and creates a ripple effect each time it hits the water. While all this happens, the picture is enclosed in a black circle outline, and "WALDEN MEDIA" fades in. After a while, we fade out.

  • An in-credit version of this logo is used in the closing credits.
  • A print logo was used on The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep game for Nintendo DS.
  • On Because of Winn Dixie, after the logo finishes, the ripping water freezes.

FX/SFX: A combination of live-action and CGI.

Music/Sounds: A 3-note piano sounder with horns, composed by Jeremy Soule. Sometimes, it used the opening theme of the film.

Music/Sounds Variant: On Because of Winn-Dixie and Ghosts of the Abyss, a calm, synthesized theme is used.

Availability: Seen on films made by Walden Media during the time frame. It first appeared on Ghosts of the Abyss and last appeared on Bandslam.

Editor's Note: In real life, the stone would be skipping the wrong way. The biggest jump should be first, not last. However, the footage is probably reversed, so this is excusable.

2nd Logo
(January 22, 2010- )

Nicknames: "The Flipping Stone II", "The Enhanced Flipping Stone", "The CGI Flipping Stone", "The Enhanced Skipping Stone"

Logo: A redone version of the previous logo, but this time the ripple effect is in gold, the words "WALDEN MEDIA" are colored in blue, and it's in a different lake environment. The whole logo is in CGI. Also, the rock bounces from the right instead of the left and is hopping away in opposite to the previous towards you.

FX/SFX: Same as the previous logo.

Music/Sounds: Same as the previous logo, but slightly condensed.

Availability: Seen on all of the company's films starting with Tooth Fairy (although trailers of the film use the previous logo). This does not appear on
Waiting for "Superman".

Editor's Note: None.
