1st Logo (1989-1996)

Nickname: "Silver Rectangle"

Logo: We start out with a dark blue starry sky background. A silver/gray octagonal rectangle shifts up. Then "STARMAKER" in a stylized font with a line under it, but the bottom V of the M overlaps it, making it "cut open", shifts down to on the rectangle. The name then shines with pings.

FX/SFX: The animation in the logo.

Music/Sounds: A synth chord, then a repeating series of synth beeps and 3 "pings" in sync with the shining.

Availability: Can be found on tapes from the period, such as budget versions of the post-1984 New World library, among others, and some tapes of TV shows, most notably Crime Story, Faerie Tale Theatre, Heathers, Transformations, Last Train from Gun Hill, and Saturday Night Live. Some Starmaker tapes were later re-issued by Video Treasures/Anchor Bay in the late 1990s, but the logo still appears on the tapes.

Editor's Note: None.


2nd Logo (2000s)

Logo: On a black background, we see the print version of the previous Starmaker logo in a white box zoom in toward us. Then it stops once it's in view.

FX/SFX: The zooming of the logo.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Rare. Seen on one of the Shelley Duvall's Bedtime Stories DVDs.

Editor's Note: None.
