Cal Vista International

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Cal Vista International was an American adult film production and distribution company from California.

Logo (Late 1970's-Early 1980's)

Visuals: The logo opens with shot of flowers in some grass on a brown and blue background dancing altogether. After a couple of seconds, it zooms out to show the whole scene with a grassy floor, a rock, and several more flowers. A blonde naked woman wearing only a transparent cloak walks in from the left side of the screen, carrying a 35mm movie camera over her left shoulder and looking through the viewfinder. She stops at the right side of the screen and turns toward the viewer. A small dog emerges from the camera's lens and jumps onto the rock. A butterfly emerges from the grass, flying over the dog and off the screen to the right. The camera zooms into the dog as it barks twice. As the camera zooms out, the dog barks three more times. The words "CAL", "VISTA" and "INTERNATIONAL", in a font similar to Baker Signet, appear on the screen after every bark. The scene then fades out, but the words remain on a black background with a bunch of white dots spinning around them. The word "presents" in the same font appears below the company's name and the background begins to sparkle. After a few seconds, the screen turns completely black.

Technique: Cel animation.

Audio: In the first part, orchestral music featuring strings, woodwinds and the vibraphone, and a brass fanfare with the dog barking for the second part. Composed by Richard Hieronymus.

Audio Variant: There exists a variant with synth music, composed of late 70s/early 80s synth chords, ascending and descending notes, and galactic noises, similar to shooting stars zooming through the sky. The dog's barking also sounds more synthesized.

Availability: It can presumably be seen on Cal Vista Video releases, such as Easy.
