Demel International Corporation/Home Video (Poland)
1st Logo (1984?-1996)
Nicknames: "Action Movie Cube"
Logo: On a sunny sky with white clouds, the stacked words: "Demel International Corporation" (with Demel on a script font) are seen zooming in from the left side to disappear at the right while rotating. The "De" in "Demel" looks bold while "mel" is outlined. When the text is about to disappear, a 3D cube appèars with a dissolve effect and rotates around. There are various action movie scenes displaying on it. The cube slows down as it faces to the camera and the "De" zooms in from the cube while spinning. The "mel" writes in next to "De", which forms the "Demel" text, while the cube disappears with another dissolve effect. "INTERNATIONAL CORPORATION" appears below "Demel". The text looks stacked just like before. Finally,
AL STANÓW ZJEDNOCZONYCH 69
appears below the logo.
FX/SFX: A couple of zooming, moving and rotating CG effects. Looks good for a Polish logo at that time, but for now it's a bit outdated.
Music/Sounds: A dramatic, ascending synth string note is first heard. A synthesized theme is then heard with the same strings. When "Demel" forms, more string notes are heard. We finally hear a calming 3-note theme, again, with the same synth strings.
Availability: Rare. Seen on Polish VHS releases from this company.
Editor's Note: None.
2nd Logo (1996-2000's)
Nicknames: "Demel Lion"
Logo: On a space background, a outline of a lion is being drawn on a piece of marble. When it finishes drawing, it fills up with gold and the marble takes up the entire screen. Stars fly onto the marble and form a ring around the lion. The lion zooms out and the "Demel" word in gold zooms out and rotates under the lion as the marble becomes bars and "INTERNATIONAL CORPORATION" or "HOME VIDEO" in gold fade in.
FX/SFX: The outline and stars.
Music/Sounds: A warbling, majestic synth fanfare.
Availability: No longer current, but it is seen on Polish VHS releases from this company.
Editor's Note: None.
