Quincy Jones-David Salzman Entertainment

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Background

This is the production company of Quincy Jones and David Salzman. It was formed in 1993 when the duo's individual companies, Quincy Jones Entertainment and David Salzman Enterprises, merged.

1st Logo (October 4, 1993-1995)


Visuals: Over a green marble background, there are two bright green lines separating each other. Afterwards, the text "QUINCY JONES" come in from the left, "DAVID SALZMAN" coming in from the right, and "ENTERTAINMENT" come in from the bottom. When they stop, they shine for the initials of the company's name.

Variant: On The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, "In Association With" appears below.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: The end theme or sounds of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, or the sounder from the 1992 David Salzman Entertainment logo on 1994-Spring 1995 episodes of The Jenny Jones Show.

Availability: Seen on season 4 of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air on Max, and on 1994-Spring 1995 episodes of The Jenny Jones Show in syndication.

2nd Logo (September 19, 1994-May 16, 2009)


Visuals: On a white background, there is a backwards, tan "Q". It rotates to the right, revealing a brown "D", and a red circle with an "e" in it. When the logo is formed, the words "QUINCY JONES·DAVID SALZMAN ENTERTAINMENT" fade in below. Sometimes, "IN ASSOCIATION WITH" appears below afterwards.

Technique: CGI. None on late season 4 episodes of The Jenny Jones Show.

Audio: A whoosh sound, followed by a ding (on MADtv, it would sometimes have a quote from the episode over the whoosh and ding). A different sounder was used on the Fall 1995-Late 1997 episodes of The Jenny Jones Show. Sometimes, the end theme finishes over it or generic music on NBC until 1996.

Availability: The version with the music appeared on MADtv, which can be seen on CWseed.com. It also appeared with the end-title theme of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air on Max and reruns in syndication, and was originally seen on talk shows produced by this company. The version without "IN ASSOCIATION WITH" was seen on the Time-Life Video release of History of Rock n' Roll: Volume One and Spring 1995-Late 1997 episodes of The Jenny Jones Show in syndication. Also appeared on the NBC/UPN sitcom In the House as well, considering that both this show and Fresh Prince were produced by the duo.
