The Movie Group

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum

Logo (November 23, 1988-1997)

Visuals: On a black BG, two tilted rectangles (one gray, one red with "T.H.E" already inserted) coming from upside and downside. While the rectangles zooms back slowly while spinning slowly, "movie group" write themselves. When the logo already met it's position, the gray rectangle tilting itself, while "PRESENTS" glows for a while and turns gray. After this happened, there's a box outline surrounded the "T.H.E. movie group", with "T.H.E." underlined.

Technique: 2D computer animation.

Audio: A synthesized guitar-like tune.

Availability: Seen on Best of the Best 3: No Turning Back, The Maid, some prints of Kickboxer, Near Misses (AKA: Near Mrs.), and Cadence, among others. It was also spotted on the Canadian C/FP Video release of Desert Chase (AKA: The Rutanga Tapes). Was also seen on foreign prints of Edgar Allen Poe's Buried Alive and possibly Beyond the Stars, Bail Out, and Lobster Man from Mars, among others.
