Background

Heyday Films is the production company of David Heyman, established in 1996. Though its first film was Ravenous, it's most known for all eight of the Harry Potter movies, alongside other films like I Am Legend, Yes Man, and the two Paddington movies. No logo was used until the fourth Harry Potter film, The Goblet of Fire.

1st Logo

Nickname: "HF"

Logo: On a black background, the text "HEYDAY FILMS" (With the "F" in "FILMS" stylized) fades in from the right, with the blue circle fades in from the left side of "HEYDAY". On the circle, sync with it fading in, a stylized "HF" is drawn, with the "H" and "F" connected.

Variant: A still version appears before the closing credits on TV airings of Goblet of Fire.

2nd Logo
(2007- )

Logo: In darkness, the silver letters of "HEYDAY FILMS" fly and stand in correct positions while darkness becomes the orange cloudy sky environment. The background then later fades to black and the text remain for a second before fading out.

Variants:

  • A shortened version appears**TV airings had it still.
  • A still version with white text appears at the end of the last three Harry Potter features (The Half-Blood Prince and both parts of The Deathly Hallows.), and The Light Between Oceans.
  • On Paddington, it starts out like normal until we hear the sound of a film projector, then it turns grayscaled and film-deteriorated.
  • At the beginning of Paddington 2, the words fades in, zooming slightly on the black background. The different cloudy sky environment fades from black. The camera zooms past the words (in which the letters is flying away), through the clouds to the flashback prologue set in the waterfalls of Peru.

FX/SFX: CGI.

Music/Sounds: A wind sound heard throughout.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • The short version is silent.
