Olympic Video

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum

Logo (1986)

Visuals: Amongst a space background is the text "OLYMPIC" in red zoom towards the camera. A couple of seconds later is "Video", also in red, zoom in underneath "OLYMPIC". Then, "OLYMPIC" stops zooming at a comfortable spot before a yellow line draws itself on the left side. Then, the line turns just before "Video" stops zooming in. After "Video" stops zooming, the line turns upward on the right side of the text, then turns to the "O" at "Video" before turning into an arrow. Then, "Σ. ΜΑΡΚΙΔΗΣ & ΣΙΑ" types itself on as it flashes each time a letter appears. Then, the logo fades into the warning screen.

Technique: Cel animation.

Audio: An explosion sound, which is followed by a sample of “Orient Express” by Jean-Michel Jarre.

Availability: Seen on Greek VHS releases of Hands of Death, Amazons, Mister Deathman and The Black Cobra 2.
