Closing Logo Group

Background: FADYO (Film And Drama Youth Organisation, formerly known as "FADYO Pictures Production") is a Mizo language film company, founded in 2002 by producer and director C. Hmingthangvunga in 2002 and based in Chanmari, Aizawl, Mizoram, India.

1st Logo (2002)[]


FADYO (2002)

Nicknames: "Pinnacle Studio Video Test", "Cheap Shattering Glass"

Logo: On a black background, the text "FADYO" in a futuristic font with gold 3D sides slide in from the left. Just when the company name (same as the text above) and the grey glowing text "Presentation" appears (sliding in from the right), the screen crashes into pieces with a pink outline. They fly away. The proper logo fades in, with "Film and Drama Youth Organisation" under the text in a small size, and "Presentation" in a same size, below. After a few seconds, the screen explodes into pieces again, but this time like a window glass being smashed, and falls into the ground.

FX/SFX: CGI animation.

Music/Sounds: A constant sound of a strong wind, followed by two breaking glass sound effects when the screen breaks into pieces twice.

Availability: Seen on Chhingkhual Lanu.

Editor's Note: The strong wind sound effect mixed with a dark background, along with the screen breaking and the sounds may surprise many. This is a rather cheap logo, and looks like the product of an early Pinnacle Studio project. However, things go from bad to worse...

2nd Logo (2003-2016)[]


FADYO (2003)

Nicknames: 'The Cheesiest Logo of All Time' 'Interruption of the Universal 90s Globe' 'The Clown Nose and Smile'

Logo: We see the animation from the 1990 Universal Pictures in slow motion. Just before the letters of "UNIVERSAL" appear, the globe is crudely moved to the left, in order to expand the starry background from the logo. Then, we see another earth globe spinning and zooming out choppily, which slowly becomes a red circle. A red ring zooms out, surrounding the red dot. Then, we fade into a 3D representation of the red dot and arc, with a bold half circle below, the word "FADYO" above, and "Presents" below all of them. Finally, white light rays emerge from the dot in the shape of the at sign ("@") moving from up to down of the logo (like a searchlight), and then dissapear.

Variant: On Mawia Te Chhungkua, the logo is in 16:9 HD.

FX/SFX: The opening of the the 1990 Universal logo, the background "expanding", the globe zooming out, and the rest of the logo being formed. All of this is done in a choppy framerate.

Music/Sounds: The horn intro from "All You Need is Love" by The Beatles (inspired by "Le Marseillaise", which is also the French national anthem), followed by rocket-like sound effect, taken from the video game 3D Pinball Space Cadet. After this, the intro from "Free as a Bird," also by The Beatles, plays, and then the same sound effect from earlier when the lights appear.

Availability: Appears on the company's films, such as Khuanu Samsuih, Zodinpuii, I Tello Chan, Mawia Te Chhungkua, Men In Blue, and other movies produced by the company.

Editor's Note: This logo is somewhat known outside of India for its poor animation and stolen elements from other, otherwise copyrighted sources.

3rd Logo (2016-)[]


FADYO (2016-present, India)-2

Nicknames: "The Clown Nose and Smile II", "Blue Clown Smile", "Improved FADYO"

Logo: Amongst a dark background with a beam of light at the top left corner, we see the clown smile logo from before, now in a different shape and coloured blue, appear by a rippling effect. The logo then shines a bit as "FADYO" in red wipes itself over the logo. Then, we see "Pictures Productions" and "Presents" appear in a rippling effect as the curve of the logo starts to shine. Then, "FADYO" starts to shine. The beam moves throughout the entire logo.

FX/SFX: The rippling effects and text wiping, the beam moving.

Music/Sounds: A peaceful tune with an orchestra, followed by a thumping sound after "FADYO" wipes in.

Availability: Shown on Favang.

Editor's Note: It's still cheaply made, but definitely a big improvement over the last two logos.
