Background: Brent Walker Film Distributors Limited was the video counterpart for the UK-based gambling and beverages company, Brent Walker Group.

1st Logo
(Late 1970s?)

Logo: TBA

FX/SFX: The video clips, the movement of the logo and text. Very cheap, not to mention that the print looks like it was tacked inside the logo.

Music/Sounds: A 14-note fanfare at first, then 4 percussion liners. The fanfare repeats with 3 extra notes without the percussion. This was excerpted from "Horizontal Hold" by "Jack Trombey" (a.k.a. Jan Stoeckart), a De Wolfe stock track that was also used as CBS's The NFL Today theme in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Availability: Seen on films by the company. An example is Big Banana Feet.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo

Note: For proper viewing of the logo, skip to 0:22.

Logo: On a black background, we see a red arrow rise up from the screen. At that time, "Brent Walker", in white, along with "Film Distributors Limited", fade in. After that, an red-orange arrow overlaps the red arrow, along with orange, yellow, and beige arrows. When the beige arrow comes in, the logo fades out, and the
<iframe align="right" height="165" src="" width="294"></iframe>arrows start to rotate. 2 arrows with shades of green and blue start to overlap as well. An upside-down triangle, in orange, pans down to reveal the Brent Walker logo. The "B" in Brent Walker's logo is revealed. More shades of red, green, blue, and yellow pass inside the logo. Suddenly, they freeze frame, and become white. The text "A Member of the Brent Walker Group" fades in, and the B&W logo zooms out. The byline fades out, the B&W logo freeze-frames, and the text "Presents", in white, fades in.

FX/SFX: Typical '70s animation.

Music/Sounds: A synth tune is played throughout the logo. In some cases, it is replaced with disco music.

Availability: Seen on releases by the company.

Editor's Note: None.

3rd Logo

Logo: On a black background, we see the same beginning text from the previous logo, but all set in white. 8 green lines form a grid, causing the horizon to lighten up in a blue color. More lines appear in the opposite vertical direction, coming towards us. The BW logo from the previous logo, transparent with blue
<iframe align="right" height="165" src="" width="220"></iframe>outlines, zooms out of the screen, causing the text to fade out. When it hits the horizon, it starts to speedily zoom towards us, causing the outlines to thin out, and the logo to flash. The same 2 texts from the previous logo appear, also in white.

FX/SFX: The lines forming, the logo and the flash. Typical '80s animation.

Music/Sounds: An electronic theme that starts to rise in resonance. It later ascends in pitch, causing a "BANG!" to occur.

Availability: Seen on releases by the company. An example is Fanny Hill.
