PolyGram Video Feature Presentation Bumper (1993)

ID: Same as the Coming Soon IDs of the era, except the metallic words "FEATURE" and "PRESENTATION" zoom out and connect themselves. A red/orange sparkle appears on "FEATURE" and a shine goes though both words.

FX/SFX: The zooming out of the words, and the sparkle and shine.

Music/Sounds: The same low synth note from the Coming Soon IDs, and a higher synth note accompanying the sparkle and shine.

Availability: Rare, seen on Four Weddings and a Funeral.

Scare Factor: Same as the Coming Soon IDs.


First PolyGram Video and USA Home Entertainment Feature Presentation ID

ID: On a blue wallpaper of PolyGram Video logos from the era, the words "FEATURE PRESENTATION" zoom in extremely fast.

Variant: On the 1998 VHS of The Graduate, "FEATURE PRESENTATION" is already in place and the ID is still.

FX/SFX: The zoom-in of the words. None for the still variant.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Seen on some PolyGram Video releases from the era. It's last appearance was on the 1998 VHS release of The Graduate.

Scare Factor: Low to medium. The extremely fast zoom-in of the words could catch some off-guard. None for the still variant.


ID: On a blue gradient wallpaper of the words "POLYGRAM VIDEO", a large, and silver "FEATURE" in 3D flies down from the above right of the viewer's screen, while the word "PRESENTATION", also silver and in 3D, but smaller than "FEATURE", zooms in at the bottom. The words shine and fade away via a stretch effect.

Variant: USA Home Entertainment releases have their logo on the wallpaper.

FX/SFX: The words moving and zooming, shining, and then fading out and stretching.

Cheesy Factor: It looks like the shining of the words was just slapped on the ID without any effort to make it look decent.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Seen on some PolyGram Video and USA Home Entertainment releases from the era.

Scare Factor: None to minimal. The stretch effect can unnerve some, but it is tamer than the previous ID, otherwise.
