Background: Film Finance Corporation (otherwise known as FFC Australia) was a Australian Government department which helped finance Australian film and TV production. It was one of three companies merged to form Screen Australia in 2008. They had no proper animated logo until 2006, and earlier productions just used an in-credit in the credits).


1st Logo (Late 1980's-1999)


Logo: An in-credit logo which includes the copyright information and the company name "Australian Film Finance Corporation". The logo shows three folded filmstrips which form "FFC".

FX/SFX: None.

Variants: On Delinquents, there is an announcer "Made with the participation of" and the full name is used.

Music/Sounds: The ending theme of the show.

Availability: Appears in the closing credits of numerous movies, sometimes fades in after they end.

Scare Factor: None.


2nd Logo (2000-2003)

Logo: We see "financed in association with" disclaimer above the two-section box. Part of the box is taken by connected FFC letters, second "F" being gray. Other part have the name in three lines.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: The ending theme of the show.

Availability: Appeared on many films, such as Chopper and Crackerjack. Seen on Cybergirl and on the third season of Thunderstone.

Scare Factor: Medium.


3rd Logo (2003-2008)

Logo: A still predecessor to a 4th logo, with ffc drawn to the left (sometimes in red), and "australia" in white.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: The ending theme of the show.

Availability: Appeared before the animated logo was introduced and continued to pop up in closing credits. Examples include Gettin' Square and Somersault.

Scare Factor: None.


4th Logo (2006-2008)


Logo: On a background resembling nightfall in the Australian outback, we see embers rise up from the screen. Lightworks create a rope-patterned figure hanging mid-air. Sparks and embers fall down in the process, and we see more ropes appearing. A blurry figure comes into focus, which reads "ffc" with "australia" on the bottom right of the logo. The logo is still being drawn when revealed.

FX/SFX: The whole animation: embers and lightworks.

Variant: A short version is much more common. It starts from the final embers before the FFC is shown.

Music/Sounds: First the sounds of grasshoppers which then turns into a soft Indigenous Australian tribal tune

Availability: Full version is very rare and was seen on The Black Balloon. Short version was used on movies by FFC between 2006 and 2008. Examples include Kokoda and Daybreakers. It had short life span and was replaced with plain Screen Australia logo.

Scare Factor: Low to Medium.
