Independent Television


Logo: On a dark blue background with "INDEPENDENT" in a silver ITC Avant Garde font rotating around, as well as flat blue plates of the "i" logo floating upwards, an orange sphere is seen with the front of it opening up to reveal a set of lens, as well as a large rectangular block appearing below it. The lens then light up and view around while the logo straightens up, and twists its position towards the left of it. The "i" moves back as "NDEPENDENT" appear and spin one by one in a orange ITC Avant Garde font. The logo zooms out as the background continues to move.

The logo keeps shining for a few more seconds and the background changes back to black. Then, another wave turns the background back to blue, and then fades back again to black. A female announcer says "Ion Television" and a final wave turns the background blue again.
