August Entertainment

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum

Logo (July 1, 1987-2004, April 20-December 21, 2008)

Visuals: From a side view, we can see layers of frames with a flash beaming through them. The camera moves to straight view, and only one frame is seen, which has a carved a letter on it, and three "filmstrip-side" dots. Shortly after, the word AUGUST zooms in below, as the camera moves, and then ENTERTAINMENT appears with the separation line.

Variants: An early version was in black and white and still. Sometimes, the colors are inverted.

Technique: CGI by Novocom.

Audio: A synth composition with chime bells.

Audio Variant: On select overseas prints of Only the Strong, the 1979 20th Century Fox fanfare is heard due to sloppy plastering. Other foreign prints use the normal fanfare.

Availability: Can be seen on Sleep With Me, Necronomicon: Book of the Dead, Red Scorpion 2 (Alliance Atlantis VHS only, as the MCA/Universal VHS uses the SGE Entertainment logo instead), Crying Freeman, and Habitat. It was reportedly seen on international prints of Only the Strong, The Lawnmower Man, and Lawnmower Man II: Beyond Cyberspace (AKA: The Lawnmower Man II: Jobe's War). The still version is seen on earlier released movies such as Where Sleeping Dogs Lie. The white background version was seen on a Canadian VHS release of Nukie (the U.S. release from Vidmark omits it, despite having the print logo on the back cover), the 2001 MGM VHS of The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai, the Japanese VHS of Halloween (1978), and Spirit of the Eagle (DVDs of the latter two films don't feature it).
