PSN Entertainment Group

Background: PSN (which stands for Pandemic/Widespread Stars Nation) is an American entertainment group formed in 1998 by Ryan Tomberstone and Lowter Wish, which concentrates on film/TV production. Ryan Tomberstone set his foothold in America by taking over National in 2002, renaming it PSN Corporation. Meanwhile, Lowter made TeleNative, DualMountain, Cresential and Drawing Triangle join the group. In 2011, PSN announced the adquirement of 3 more companies (1st Leader, Honppon and Skylight/Pond). Currently PSN (and the companies they own) has offices in the USA, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China (incl. Hong Kong), Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, India, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, the Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Ukraine, and the UK, operating in a total of 24 countries.


Nicknames: "Stripe Star", "PSN Star"

Logo: On a black background, we see a 5-point star with two abstract stripes encarved on the sides of it. Below, there's "PSN ENTERTAINMENT GROUP".

FX/SFX: None.


Music/Sounds Variant: Strangely, on a 2011 Polish DVD of Nic Specjalnego, the first part of Also Sprach Zarathustraas is heard if the Polish audio track is selected. It is not heard when you change the audio track to English, however. The makers of the DVD later said that it was a joke.

Availability: Common before most movies made by PSN's companies since 2002 on HV or television. It is never seen in theaters. Most international HV releases of PSN films by Camper Video or 12:10 Home Vision also include this logo, but half of them din't had it, since they likely used some PAL films which doesn't contain this logo converted on NTSC format. Easily found on TV spots of TeleNative/DualMountain films, and preserved in all/some prints of Dreaming Of Tubes (including the US Blu-Ray by Egale Video), and Rock On The Crocodile. Also appears on non-PSN films which are distributed by PSN home video companies (like 12:10), including the 2008 DVD of the 1973 film Heat (before the New York Film Company logo), and TeleNative/1st Leader/Skylight demo discs.

Scare Factor: None.
