Madacy Video

1st (known) Logo
(Early 1990s)
Madacy Home Entertainment - CLG Wiki
Logo: Against a dark blue marble BG with a smaller rectangle around it, the words "MADACY VIDEO" zoom out. "MADACY" is in a silvery serif font, and "VIDEO" is in a tall gold font in between two pairs of columns, and in between two red horizontal lines. The word "PRESENTS", in white italicized letters, flips out and stops below the whole thing.
FX: All CGI used here.

Music/Sounds: A very loud rock guitar chord that is held throughout.

Availability: Seen on Madacy releases of the period.

Scare Factor: Low to medium. The music may give you a headache.

2nd Logo
(1998)


Logo: On a blue, red and rocky background, we see filmstrips as well as clips from classic films and a DVD. A black filmstrip with stripes then fades in on the bottom half of the DVD. From the top of the screen is a red "M" that places itself diagonally and in the middle of the DVD. Also from the bottom of the screen the words "MADACY ENTERTAINMENT" move in below the DVD. It all fades out and "Presents" appears.

FX/SFX: All of the CGI in the logo as well as the fading in and out "Presents".

Music/Sounds: A 90s synth piece with drums.

Availability: Seen on Madacy VHS/DVD releases during 1998.

Scare Factor: Low.

3rd Logo:
(1999)


Logo: On a black background we see parts of a DVD fly in from the right. Once the bottom half is finished the whole top half flies in. Then, in four parts, an "M" zooms out a us quickly. The disc zooms out while a black filmstrip moves in from the right of the disc and the words "MADACY ENTERTAINMENT" zoom out in white.

FX/SFX: The disc, the zooming of the "M" and the words appearing.

Music/Sounds: Space sounds that sound like lasers.

Availability: Seen on Madacy releases during 1999.

Scare Factor: Medium to high. The music and creepy animation are bound to scare a few folks.




4th Logo
(2000s-????)
Madacy Home Video (Late 1990s-????)Madacy Home Video/Entertainment - CLG Wiki

Logo: We see an observatory telescope shine it's light at the sky. We then cut to the lens of the telescope to reveal an "M" hand drawn mostly inside a light blue circle. Underneath is the word "MADACY" (in big white letters). "HOME VIDEO" is underneath. The logo then fades out and "Presents" replaces it.

FX/SFX: The CGI observatory. The logo coming into focus. The fading of the logo.

Music/Sounds: A laser sound, followed by a synth tune.

Availability: New, but rare. Found on all VHS and DVD by the company during this time period.

Scare Factor: Medium. The music can startle some.

2nd Logo
(1998-)

Logo: On an night background, we see a constatory (A place that has a big microscope). A laser on the ground strikes it, then it turns to us. We zoom inside the lens. In focus, a painted circle with an M, with Madacy Home Video at the bottom, appears.

Variant: Sometimes the Madacy logo will fade out, and then Presents appears in the lens.

Music/Sounds: A laser sound, followed by a synth tune.

FX: The logo.

Availability: New, but rare. It was first seen on a Three Stooges tape. It is also seen in Madacy DVD Tin Can Collections, mostly the 3rd, 4th or 5th disc.

Scare Factor: Medium. The music can startle some.

This just goes to prove that my art work is not the only thing that people bail out on! I thought this was a LOGO website, and only ONCE have you people ever enjoyed something i did for this site (describing the Walt Disney Studio Showcase logo) so far. The last few times i uploaded a vid for a logo on this site, it's either been replaced by a better copy of it (the 1999 WNET ident) or it's been abandoned/ignored (the WTCI clip, the 1990-D Public TV fOR eaST tENNESSEE ident, the 3rd Madacy logo). Also, SO WHAT if the Touchstone Pictures logo from "Noises Off"was just the regular logo? You could at least thank me for finding it! And what about the St. Claire Vision, Film Classics Video and Gold Hil Video logos? I Hope you guys realize that THERE ARE other things i care about besides Movie Celebrities!
