Production logo sản phẩm
As of Clay Pigeons, released in 1998, the production logo is a watercolour animation of a crudely-drawn man wearing monk-style clothing with a white haze surrounding him, walking and smoking a cigarette, him running and transforming into a bird. The company name (sometimes since A Good Year in 2006, without it) appears underneath the bird and everything turns blue and on a black background. The bird is between the name. It was done by Italian artist and animator Gianluigi Toccafondo.
