Amvest Video

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Amvest Video was a New Jersey-based video company that specialized in public domain releases. It had ties to the earlier budget record label Audiofidelity Records. Amvest went out of business around 1990.

Logo (1987?-1990?)

Visuals: In a subway tunnel against a space background, the words "AMVEST VIDEO" zoom in from the center. The tunnel also lights up when the words pass it. When it finishes zooming in, the tunnel fades out. The words then shine.

Trivia: If you look closely, you can still see some of the blue used in the chroma key process.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: A rearrangement of "Sunrise" from "Also Sprach Zarathustra" (well-known as the song used in 2001: A Space Odyssey), with a whoosh and some twinkling sounds before and after the tunnel fades out.

Availability: Amvest Video went out of business quickly and tapes were not common even back then. Can be found on a VHS of The Many Faces of Bond and maybe some other public domain releases of the time.
