Video City International

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum

1st Logo (1985)

Visuals: There is a black background with stars rapidly shooting forth in a "spiral" motion. Then, it quickly fades to a rapidly zooming star field. Then, two yellow-orange light trails with "VCI" written on them in threes (also in yellow-orange) zoom out from the center of the screen to the top and bottom. Finally, a yellow-orange "VCI", written in a 3D "blocky" font surrounded by a hexagonal frame, zooms up from the bottom via a "rainbow trail" effect. As the star field fades out, the logo sparkles several times, and the text "VIDEO CITY INTERNATIONAL" wipes in below in yellow-orange, followed by some text written in Greek (possibly VCI's address and phone number). Then, the logo stops sparkling.

Technique: Cel animation and Scanimate effects.

Audio: A low-budget rendition of the Star Wars theme.

Availability: Seen on Greek tapes from the period such as Ο ιππότης της σφαλιάρας (The Knight of the Cuff).

2nd (alternate) Logo (1980s)

Visuals: On an orange background, a blue object is seen "rippling". After a bit, it stops "rippling", coming together to form the VCI logo from before. The name, address and phone number from before, this time chyroned over it, appears as the logo backs up a bit.

Technique: Scanimate.

Audio: A dramatic and majestic fanfare.

Availability: Same as before.
