[]

(1996-Early 2000's)[]

Logo: We fade to a blue background with the black Chinese text, with an underline below and "RAINTREE PICTURES" below it. The logo shines into silver, then it turns white.

FX/SFX: The shining and change of color.

Cheesy Factor: There is no raintree or rainy weather.

Music/Sounds: A battle drum fanfare.

Availability: Spotted on their earlier movies.

Scare Factor: Minimal.

[]

(1999)[]

Logo: On a view of a forest is a flower and trees. The flower sparkles as the 1st logo (albeit no shining and the text is pink) appears.

FX/SFX: The sparkles on the flower.

Music/Sounds: None

Availability: Extinct. From The Truth about Jane and Sam.

Scare Factor: Low as the sparkle of the flower as well as silence can contribute some.

[]

(Early 2000's)[]

Logo: On a marble background, we see the blue MediaCorp logo and it's Chinese name. Below it, there's the green Raintree Pictures logo.

FX/SFX: None.

Cheesy Factor: Like the 1st logo, there's still no raintree.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Can be found on their movies during the time.

Scare Factor: None.

3rd Logo[]

(Early 2000's-2012)[]

Logo: We see a tree on a sunny grass field. Ripples appear on the screen, making a transition to one of the following logos, on the same marble background:

  • Early: "RAINTREE PICTURES". The MediaCorp logo would later fade in above with the "Studios" script below.
  • Late: A wide green drawing of a tree, with "MediaCorp Raintree Pictures" below.

FX/SFX: The ripple transition.

Cheesy Factor: The later variant seems a bit more rushed than the earlier one.

Music/Sounds: A relaxing violin/piano theme, with the sounds of water drops splashing.

Availability: The most common of their logos, seen on their later films.

Scare Factor: None.
