1st Logo (1994-2002)

Logo: When the logo starts, it looks like it is taking place at a theater. We see the Starz logo in gold with it being dark in the front of it. Then, it cuts to a pedestal with the text 'encore 8' going around it in a circle with a number 8 on top of the pedestal. The light on the pedestal turns on. The light in front of the Starz logo turned on. Then it cuts to swirls going around the poles that support the theater. It cuts to the seats of the theater opening. Then it cuts to a normal star cutting into another star which makes the Starz symbol. Then finally, it cuts back to the Starz logo but now it has the text 'encore 8' going around the starz symbol.

Technique: The camera turning, the lights turning on and everything else, animated by Pittard Sullivan.
