Visuals: There is a TV turning on inside a split-box rectangle (a la Paramount Closet Killer). The first section contains a television set with an eye, with the second section having the text "NWE". Under the rectangle there's the text "NEW WAVE ENTERTAINMENT" and underneath that, "TELEVISION" or "DVD". The eye blinks.

Variant: At the end of The Baking of American Pie 2, the logo is shortened to the eye blinking.

Technique: 2D animation.

Audio: A synth buzzing sound.

Then the bookcase turns quickly around to reveal a golden square, with which a brown nine-square pattern swings into the frame. The gold text "NWE," with "NEW WAVE ENTERTAINMENT" below, shines.
