The Cleveland Show Season 2 is a 4 DVD box set with custom motion main
menus on each DVD. The new design and animation expands on the original
motion I had done at Company Wide Shut by adding even more whimsical
"stages" for the characters to appear on as well as different color combinations
for each DVD. The set includes 22 episodes spanning the 4 disc set. Each DVD
includes characters that match the episodes appearing in the motion menus as
well as unique color combinations for the backgrounds.
All animation and sound work was completed in After Effects CS5 and makes
extensive use of the Roto Brush tool which worked perfectly for rotoscoping the
animated scenarios that happen on and around the "stages." Trapcode Particular
and Starglow are used to generate the sparkles around the type. Source footage
for the characters is 720P video and everything else is created in Photoshop and
After Effects. Rallo stage illustration, type design, and all static menus designed
by Jean-Paul Leonard.
