HGV Video Productions

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


HGV Video Productions Inc. was the Canadian counterpart of Anchor Bay Entertainment (formerly under "Video Treasures"). In 1998, Anchor Bay stopped using the HGV brand, and in August 2002 it was dissolved into Anchor Bay Entertainment Canada, Ltd.

Logo (1989-1998)

Visuals: On a black background, five hot magenta stripes, which get progressively thinner the farther left they are, come in from the left, a white "HGV" comes in from the right, and "Video Productions Inc.", in the same color as the stripes, comes in from the bottom, all moving at the same time. As soon as they meet in the center, the word "presents" in white, fades in below.

Variant: At the end of tapes, "presents" is omitted.

Technique: 2D animation.

Audio: Same as the 1987-1990 music of the 1st GoodTimes Home Video logo. On some releases, it's silent.

Availability: Appears on Canadian VHS releases of Video Treasures/Anchor Bay back catalog, including Troll, Cannonball Run, Ghoulies, and Thomas the Tank Engine videos, to name a few. Also appeared on Canadian video prints of A Christmas Carol (a.k.a. Scrooge).
