Hollywood House Video
Logo description by kidinbed Logo capture and video courtesy of AussieRoadshow
1st Logo (1980s)
Logo: On a black background, we see a green box containing a static image of Charlie Chaplin, as well as six small lights, that appears to be on the screen of an old TV set. Below this, we see a red box that says "HollywoodHouseVideo" (in a gold '50s-style font). We slowly zoom in to Chaplin. When we see his facial features up close, the image becomes blurry and fades out.
Technique: The zooming, the image becoming blurry, and the fading.
Music/Sounds: A 1920s-sounding piano/organ piece that would be at home in a Charlie Chaplin film.
Availability: Very rare; seen on old Aussie tapes of old black and white films.
2nd Logo (1990s)
Logo: On a black background, we see the image of Charlie Chaplin again, this time inside a purple and green frame. Underneath the company name folds in from the left of screen and then folds out to the right of screen. The the phrase "Famous Unique Content" appears through a diagonal zoom and then fades out. The "- Since 1978" fades in and then zooms and dissolves out. The logo fades out while the music is still playing and the copyright notice fades in.
Technique: Transitions for the company name and slogan.
Music/Sounds: An extended version of the music from the last logo, with a few phonograph scratches added.
Availability: Seen on all content by this company during the time period.
