This article on GeeksAreSexy.net caught my attention: Universal launched a new opener logo to commemorate their centennial.
This is really nicely done. I posted my humble observations at the comments section of that article:
At 0:07 there's a burst of flare at the edge of the letters coming out, also timed to the music.
AT 0:09 too, the sun has a tiny burst of flare, just done to match the timing of the music.
Really nicely timed and done. My observations geeky enough? haha!
