Video Acropolis

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum

Logo (1987-1988)

Visuals: On a black background, there is a blue square. A white rectangle-shaped light draws a yellow line around the square, and two "filmstrips" wipe in on both sides of the square, the left one wiping downward and the right one wiping upward. Just before they finish, a drawing of the famed Greek Acropolis building atop an elongated wireframe globe slowly zooms in. While it's zooming in, two horizontal lines wipe in above and below the drawing, again going in opposite directions. A pink light shoots out the letters in the word "Video", in a cursive font identical to the "Original" in Original Video's logo, and looking rather curvy. Finally, the letters in the word "Acropolis" shoot out, one by one, in a white Impact font next to "Video", both of which are at the very top of the square. The drawing of the temple, colored yellow-and-pink, has an "A.F." in the center of the globe below it.

Technique: Scanimation.

Audio: A funky synth-disco tune, which is a snippet of Herb Alpert's 1984 song "Bullish".

Availability: Seen on VHS releases of Παρθεναγωγείο αρρένων, Ο παπαδόγυφτος, and Ψώνιο ταπίς και ψύχραιμος.
