Welcome to Episode 2 of the Logo Corner. And what a behemoth of an episode it is.
This episode revolves around everyone's favorite movie lion, Leo, and his participation in the logo of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Films, Inc.
Because Sony Vegas kept quitting in the middle of rendering this monster, I had to split the video in three parts. That also means there's no "Cutoff Point" screen, so the videos may end awkwardly. I apologize for that, but I'd rather a chopped series of videos than ones that do not render properly.
In addition, I make several errors in this series of videos. I mention how George (the sixth MGM lion) debuted in 1956, though while the text shows that, I say he comes into the logo in 1953, which is not true.
I blame society.
This is part 2 of the episode. Hope you enjoy. Thanks for watching this quirky series. Hopefully I'll be able to make some more episodes! Thank you for watching and please comment.
