Background: King of Video, a subsidiary of 14th Mandolin Productions, was one of the first video distributors in Australia, focusing on martial arts films. It began operation in 1981, and ceased in 1987. However, they did not use a logo until 1983.
1st Logo (1983-1985)
Logo: We see a bright yellow flash in the center of the screen. Then, several pink and blue comets shoot forth, along with the words "King of Video" inblue, which zoom out to a more tolerable distance after zooming extremely close to the camera. The flash then disappears.
Technique: The flash, comets, and zooming.
Music/Sounds: An upbeat '70s horn fanfare.
Availability: Rare; seen on martial arts tapes released in Australia.
2nd Logo (1985-1987)
