Five True Stories Behind Hollywood Studio Logos

When we are in the cinema or at home watching movies, we usually have to go through the opening with the logo of the film studio first. These logos have a very interesting history behind, but almost no one has ever thought about how they were made.

Are you intrigued already? Then get yourself comfortable while we show you the history of the most famous studios logos.
