Plastic Wax

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Plastic Wax is an animation and visual effects studio specialising in content for video games, film and television.

1st Logo (1998-2002)

Visuals: On a dimly lit surface, several letters fly down with blue streaks into the place, creating ripples while they do so. Sparkles can also be seen everywhere. Once they all land in the surface, they rotate towards the screen and a blue light shines on the newly-formed words "P L A S T I C W A X" in Courier. The ripples continue until the logo zooms out.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: A dramatic synth-string sounder with a "bling" during the shine, and ending with a short choir tune and a "slam" sound.

Audio Trivia: The music is the "Scary" variation of "Dramatic Logo 2", and is also used in the 1999 Rhino Home Video, 2002 Eureka Multimedia (lacking the slam sound), and the 2003 Favorit-Film logos.

Availability: Can be seen on Hi-5 Activity Centre, The Wiggles: Wiggly Party, The Wiggles: Wiggle Bay and The Wiggles: A Day With The Wiggles. It may or may not have appeared on The Hooley-Dooleys Oopsadazee! CD-ROM.

2nd Logo (2002-2003)

Visuals: A shot of a yellow surface with various clay figures strewn about fades in. A red figure, which has 2 "ears" and no facial features, comes stumbling around the surface like it's tired. It then falls flat onto the table before the main outline glows and shines. The surface then morphs into a tilted dark red rectangle, before various lines stretch and spin into place. Everything then moves into position, before going to the final result which has the rectangle tilted and the figure off-centre. To the right is the outlined text:

Plastic Wax

stacked, in Impact, and glowing pink except for the part that is in the rectangle. Below it is a line connected to a glowing star.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: The end theme of the movie.

Availability: Can be seen at the end of The Hooley Dooleys: Oopsadazee! and The Wiggles: Space Dancing.
