Logo: On a white background, we see the IFC logo in black with the words "Originals" next to it in black blurred and zooms in. Then it cuts to the copyright notice.
FX/SFX: The blurring and zooming.
Availability: Seen on some programs, such as Z Channel: A Magnificent Obession.
Scare Factor: Minimal. It's nothing compared to the follow-up...
Nickname: "The Jar"
Logo: We see two doors opening to reveal an empty jar. One jar is a black IFC logo with the words "originals" logo. The logo zooms in closer, a la the 1976 Viacom V of Doom logo. Once the logo zooms, the words "An IFC Original Production". Sometimes a copyright notice appears below.
FX/SFX: The zooming.
Music/Sounds: A string note, with two horn notes and a robotic noise. Sometimes the end theme plays over the logo.
Availability: Seen on some IFC programming of the era. Also shows up on 2008-2010 episodes of The Whitest Kids U'Know.
Scare Factor: Medium to nightmare, because of the darkness and the awful zooming animation.

FX/SFX: The live-action hand.
