Closing Logo Group

Background: RSL Entertainment Corporation was a Canadian company founded in 1975 by producer Robert S. Lantos. It was later absorbed into Alliance Communications (now Entertainment One).

(1984-1986)[]

Logo: Two silver arches are being drawn by light streaks on a black/blue gradient background. After they appear in place, "RSL" zooms in out of a flash explosion. The whole logo shines.

Variant: Sometimes, "ENTERTAINMENT CORPORATION" is chyroned underneath. Also, there is a short variant where the logo just shines.

FX/SFX: The flashes and forming of the arches.

Music/Sounds: A distorted synth sound while the arches are being drawn, followed by a news-like repeating synth as RSL is revealed. For the short variant, the closing theme of the show.

Availability: Extremely rare. Seen on movies released by this company at the time, and on early episodes of Night Heat. It also appeared on a VHS of One Night Only.

Editor's Note: The effects look pretty good for their time, but the font for the logo looks pretty inconsistent. Also, the chyron variant is cheap.
