Logo description by codyfinke Logo captures by Eric S. Editions by CuriousGeorge60, kidinbed, and thehugetvfan Video captures courtesy of Veepar and roygerdodger721 ==1st Logo (1980s-1996)==
Nicknames: "Silver Rectangle", "STARMAKER in Space", "STARMAKER of Steel"
Logo: We start out with a starry sky background. A silver/gray octagonal rectangle shifts up. Then "STARMAKER" in a stylized font with a line under it, but the bottom V of the M overlaps it, making it "cut open", shifts down to on the rectangle. The name then shines with pings.
Variant: Some VHS tapes have the dark blue background.
FX/SFX: The animation in the logo.
Music/Sounds: A synth chord, then a series of synth beeps and 3 "pings" in sync with the shining.
Availability: Rare. Can be found on tapes from the period, such as budget versions of the post-1984 New World and Vidmark library and some tapes of TV shows, most notably Crime Story, Faerie Tale Theatre, Heathers, and Saturday Night Live, even some co-released by Video Treasures and some early Anchor Bay releases!
Scare Factor: Medium to high.
==2nd Logo (2000s)==
Logo: On a black background, we see the print version of the previous Starmaker logo in a white box zoom in toward us. Then it stops once it's in view.
FX/SFX: The zooming of the logo.
Availability: Rare. Seen on all DVDs of Shelley Duvall's Bedtime Stories.
Scare Factor: None
