Closing Logo Group



Athena Productions, Inc. (1984-1985)

Nicknames: "The Woman With A Lightsaber", "Outdated Productions, Inc.", ''First Shake, Rattle and Roll (Movie) Logo Before Regal Entertaiment'' ''Stuck In The 70's''

Logo: The logo starts as a blue light flashing. It disappears as we can see a woman wearing an white or orange dress and holding a red lightsaber. She raises her left arm with a lightsaber, causing a yellow light to flashes. It disappears as two copies of the outline version of "ATHENA" slide and zoom in. It flashes a lot, causing it to fill in yellow. We see a light sliding from right to left in 8 snapshots (like some South Korean home video logos), then "PRODUCTIONS, INC." in Helvetica Bold font writes itself by letter-by-letter white flashing. It flashes. The logo stands still for 4 seconds until we cut to black.

FX/SFX: Neat combination of Scanimate animation and live-action...

Cheesy Factor: ...but for it's era, unfortunately. And the logo itself reminds us of a scene from an early 1980s fantasy adventure Conan the Barbarian-style film.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Extremely rare. Seen only on Shake, Rattle & Roll.

Scare Factor: Low. The in-your-face animation will scare some, but it's harmless.
