If a film-fest wants to reject me for my logo, they can go to hell. I spent a year making my damn movie, you can spend 15-seconds watching my awesome logo!

And yes, as DeJager pointed out, it is about branding. I don't give a damn if people remember my name. I want them to remember my production company's name (news-flash: my name isn't Cracker Funk).

I kinda feel like the movie is the only thing that matters. Do whatever you want with the logo (assuming you don't infringe any copyrights, etc.).

I think your logo looks very nice.

I have some choice words I can use to describe your comments as well, should I share?

You are saying that if you use a logo then you have an ego? It's called branding. Yes, for short films they may not matter and you should keep them short but for features I'd most certainly put a logo.
If one is watching their 12th 45-second logo of the night viewing film submissions, ego is the first word that comes to mind.

As for branding, entertainment lawyers will tell you that filmmakers need a to create a new production company for EACH of your projects. You can't reuse the same logo. How is this logo branding going to work? One needs to brand YOUR NAME or perhaps a film franchise. But production company? It's a one-off name.

If you want to get on the good graces of the festival screeners then make a good movie. A 4 second logo isn't going to piss anybody off except you.
A) I was the first person to suggest a 4 sec logo in this thread. Are you reading all the posts? B) Longer logos ARE going to piss off film festival submission screeners. We can disagree on this and let people reading this thread make up their own minds.
