Converge Video

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum

Logo (1985-1986)

Visuals: Against a black background, we slowly move to a black map of Europe with a white outline, over a cruddy-looking blue globe with a small gleaming light on top, from a bottom-right angled position (actually stock footage by CASCOM). When we stop, "CONVERGE VIDEO PRESENTS" (with a segmented circle between "CONVERGE" and "VIDEO") fades in, in a rather grungy olive-green font, and the logo the text starts flipping around several times. The text and logo then fade out as we slowly move away from the European map and towards Asia.

Technique: Computer effects.

Audio: A creepy but catchy synthesized xylophone/piano tune, then several claps as the logo wipes, and then music which sounds like an early Sega Mega Drive/Genesis game. This is actually an excerpt from "A Wongga Dance Song" by Ryuichi Sakamoto off of the Esperanto album.

Availability: Only seen on Dutch VHS tapes of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Wulpse Amazones, and Deadbeat.
