Showcase Feature Presentation IDs

From Audiovisual Identity Database

1st Logo (July 1, 2001-either August 2001 or 2003?)

Logo: On a dark orange background with several lights shining and moving throughout, we see several 3D bars, colored red and white, flying and sliding around. The camera pans down and, as the Showcase logo forms (which consists of the 1997 Showtime logo but with "TIM" replaced with "CAS" and two overlapping right lines to the right of it), form said right lines via a burst of firey light. The logo and the background shine rapidly as the text "FEATURE PRESENTATION" zooms in slowly below with a "dissolve in" effect.

Technique: The red and white bars sliding and moving and morphing into the lines beside "SHOWCASE", the lights in the background moving. Very impressive animation.

Music/Sounds: A dramatic string theme with a trip-hop/Madchester-esque breakbeat.

Availability: Extinct. This bumper was supposedly used for only 2 months, though this is unverified and it may have been used for a longer time.

2nd Bumper (August 2001 or 2003?-2007)

Bumper: TBA

Technique: More great CGI.

Music/Sounds: A re-arranged version of the Showcase theme.

Availability: Extinct.

Legacy: This would be the last "Feature Presentation" bumper the network used, as around 2007, Showcase abandoned them and instead began using "Next on" bumpers that aired directly before a following feature's content rating screens. The music from these bumpers continued to be used until around late 2008.
