Background: Cloud 9 Screen Entertainment Group was a New Zealand production company founded by Raymond Thompson.

(1996-2005)

Nicknames: "Night and Day", "Dusk and Dawn"

Logo: In letterbox format, a landscape comprising of a mountain situated next to a lake with a crescent moon on the left and a sun rising on the right on a dimly lit sky pans out. As it does, the moon fades away and the landscape becomes brighter while the sides separate from the frame. "9" fades in on the middle of the landscape, "Cloud" fades in above, and copyright info fades in below.

Variants:

  • The copyright info varies by font and letter case.
  • On The Enid Blyton Adventure Series, "SCREEN ENTERTAINMENT LIMITED" appears underneath.
  • Some shows have the logo include the company's URL, http://www.entercloud9.com.
  • On The New Tomorrow, the logo is small, still, and appears on the top right next to the second Channel 5 logo. Underneath says "A Cloud 9 production for Five" while copyright info appears below. Also, the end theme plays over it.

FX/SFX: The panning, the moon fading, the landscape turning bright, and the text appearing.

Music/Sounds: Tribal percussion and wind instruments inspired by Maori folklore.

Availability: Seen on The Tribe, The Adventures of Swiss Family Robinson, Return to Treasure Island, The Enid Blyton Adventures Series, The Enid Blyton Secret Series, A Twist in the Tale, The Legend of William Tell, Atlantis High, Revelations: The Initial Journey, and The New Tomorrow.

Scare Factor: None. This is a really beautiful logo.
