3rd Logo (1983-1999 2008-Present)

Nicknames: "Neon Saoirse" "Nelvana's distant cousin"

Logo: On a Stone-like background, Saoirse, wearing her Nightingale costume, is lifted up into the air by glowing balls of energy. One of them nearly hits the screen, turning the whole entire thing into a rectangle. One of the sparks from inside the glowing balls of energy pops out and forms the rainbow line which stops the scene inside the rectangle and turns the silhouette version of her into the real one. As it returns, Sparks from inside of the spark form “ConnorWorks H O M E V I D E O”.

Variants:A Still Version Exists

  • At the End Of Tapes, It's the same as the opening, but the Whole Logo dissapears in a shadow effect Leaving a Copyright Notice screen from before fading in on a black background, then fades out to the FBI Warning Screen. Sometimes, It doesn't fade to the Warning Screen

  • The warp Speed variant has a Loud Explosion noise when Saoirse is formed from a rainbow line

Availability:TBA

Scare Factor:Medium To High. The Bad Scanimation and the Outline of Saoirse May Cause a Lot of jumps. High To Nightmare For The Warped variant. Because the Fast Speed and The music Make this logo Even Scarier. The Closing Variant could raise the Scare Factor even more. Low For the other Variants.

  • Watch out for future releases from ConnorWorks!
  • Watch out for future releases coming soon from ConnorWorks Home Video.

Availability:TBA

Scare Factor:None. This is A Major Improvement over the 2nd logo. But the Closing Variant could raise the Scare factor a bit since it might remind you of the BBC Video closing variant from 1980-1988, Though the scare factor rises again on the next logo....

5th logo (2005-Present)

Nicknames: "And You thought that the IMAX Tunnel Wasn't Enough" "The Tunnel From Hell", "Slit-ScanWorks Home Entertainment", "I'm Confused, Isn't That IMAX's Logo?" "That Strange logo at the Start and End of their releases" "Saoirse's Tunnel" “2005, A ConnorWorks Odyssey”

Logo: The same as the IMAX "Wormhole",but the flash which replaces the tunnel with an extreme close-up of a blue outline of the ConnorWorks Home Entertainment logo from before, which zooms away from us with a light trail. When the ConnorWorks Home Entertainment logo is at a comfortable distance, the light trail disappears into the logo, which turns into a full colored version. It stays still for a couple of seconds and then zooms in to the top of the screen as the same style as said effect.

Variants:

  • An More-Common Extended Variant Exists
  • A Rare variant, found on the 2005 VHS release of the BBC version of “The Secret Garden” in which the logo quickly accelerates at the point where the tunnel gets intense and quickly decelerates back to the normal speed when the logo forms from a light trail, possibly due to an editing/compression error.

FX/SFX: Same as the IMAX logo. This is clocking at 1 minute 5 second, one second more longer than IMAX's.

Cheesy Factor: TBA

Music/Sounds: Slightly different than the IMAX and the Graphic Films Corporation logo, in a way that the sounds are extra deeper and more emphasized. The "Deep Note"-esque noise at the end is also slightly different.

Availability: Current, Appeared on newer VHS(ended in 2006 until 2010 when they rerelease them under the ConnorWorks FlashBack brand, in which this logo was featured before the previous logos play after that), Blu-Ray Disc, and DVD releases when they are originally presented in IMAX, Strangely, it was shown on the 2017 DVD of "3 Palavrinhas Volumes 1, 2, and 3" despite those not being IMAX Releases. Oddly, when the 2017 logo debuted, the logo was still used as a home video logo on early 2017 releases.

Scare Factor: Despending on the Variant.

  • Main Variant: High, for the same reasons the IMAX logo has, but the weird scheme of the logo and sudden zoom in to the bottom of the screen would definitely raise the scare factor, especially when watched in releases. The music, always, can be raised again for some, even if you aren't expecting it. It's medium for those who used to it.
  • Extended Variant: Nightmare. The more intense tunnel and the very confusing THX-Like noises could make this variant extremely scarier.
  • Warped variant: Medium to High. The sudden fast speed of this logo can get to some, but some might find it funny.
