Video Ram

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


1st Logo (1980s?)



Visuals: On a white-grayish background, a banner with a star in a yellow circle is seen, with "VIDEO RAM", both in English and Hebrew. The banner is seen spinning in the first seconds of the logo. After some time, movie posters pop up above and below the ribbon. Soon after, the posters "fly away". The camera zooms into the star, and then the star spins, transforming into "Warning" in Hebrew, with a parallelogram popping up in the same color as the circle. The screen then zooms in and see the star spinning and zoom out with the company name(s) on opposite sides of the star. Below it is some Hebrew text and numbers (possibly the address and phone number). A red banner with Hebrew text then appears, and the text flashes a few times.

Technique: 2D computer animation.

Audio: A pop/disco synth tune which is actually an instrumental version of "Gimme Gimme Gimme (A Man After Midnight)" by ABBA. You can also hear a snippet of "Does Your Mother Know?", also by ABBA, in the logo as the posters appear.

Availability: It can be seen on Israeli tapes from the time being.
