1st Logo

: On a black/blue gradient background, a rotating silver film reel zooms out. It stops zooming and continues to rotate as a silver version of the SGE building flies upward and rotates. Then they zoom out as a silver version of the SGE palm tree appears, revealing they were on a silver pedestal. Two silver lines appear next to the building and the letters "SGE" in a silver futuristic font zooms out onto the lines via a blue trail effect and the silver words "HOME VIDEO" zoom out into the bottom of the logo via said effect.
