The definition of the word "ludic" should inform your design: "Showing spontaneous and undirected playfulness.
I am a huge fan of the late logo designer Paul Rand. Feel free to try something in his Modernist vain, as though you were doing a "Paul Rand" design (since you won't be able to help but make it your own anyway).
Font-wise: I have a predilection for 1970's Sans Serif fonts (the "Swiss" fonts) and the contemporary slab serifs you see in tech. That said, I'm not an expert, and you probably are, so if you feel strongly about a font, use it. And feel free to provide options.
Elements we think might be interesting to try: the idea of juxtaposing of art and technology. This can be manifested in a non-on-the-nose way, for instance: juxtaposing northern lights + tropics, space and sea, past and future, or a mammal cub (i.e. snow leopards, orcas, seals or narwhals) off the definition of the word "ludic” ("showing spontaneous and undirected playfulness"). Wide open to trying things we haven't thought of--in fact, in all likelihood, the logo we choose will be something we haven't thought of at all.
What we DON’T want: logos of cameras, or lights, or on-the-nose related to movies, unless they’re somehow brilliantly interwoven with something else (imagine Tesla's logo showed a car, or Apple's logo showed a computer; you get the idea. It would be horrible!) Remember our "start with why" above.
A note on the Ludic Pictures text: If you're going to stylize the text, I'd stylize LUDIC, not pictures (in case, for example, in the future we could then take the logo and have "Ludic TV", "Ludic Studios", etc.)
The Ludic brand: The word ludic means "playful", so I want the branding to embody that; on the other hand, I want the brand to be high-end and prestigious—not in a hoity toity law firm or Wall Street way, but in a modern, Silicon Valley way ("playful" without being "goofy"/“amateurish”). Think Apple, Tesla, Pixar, etc.: premium products, devoted to perfection and quality with everything we come out with.
All and all, go crazy, iterate often, and "fail" often. We want something out of the box. I will probably respond to every design within a couple hours, and give notes on all of them, because I believe in fast-iteration and honing in on what works and immediately moving on from what doesn't. Can't wait to see what you deliver. Go play, spontaneously and undirected.
