Steven does Muppets

TODAY'S POST IS #200 and to celebrate, let's switch gears and talk about my brother Steven.

For those of you DVD fanatics and Muppet fans, The Muppet Show Season One was released. I have not picked this up as yet since I can't afford the $27, but I hear it is fantastic.
Steve (second from left to right) worked on the menu design. He came up with the design based on the feedback of Disney and the internet community is abuzz. Here is some comments I have noticed... said...
Menu Design and Navigation: Menus are excellent. A screen of various-colored blocks rotates around in a V-like fashion, revealing the main menu. At various points, the blocks with the show logo flip around, and Statler and Waldorf (the two old guys in the balcony) say one of several various things. If you donít choose a menu option after a certain amount of time, they even comment about your not choosing to play the show (they THANK you). Each option (Play All, Episode Selection, Set Up, Muppet Morsels, and Special Features) are all on an individual block. Selecting a block will cause the blocks to flip, and a sub-menu (blocks with a certain color scheme, with several blocks removed) will open up. The options for each submenu are in the part where blocks have been removed. Episode selection menus (Miss Piggy themed) offer a screenshot of the episode guest, as well as the episode name. Text links at the bottom offer to take you to either episode selection menu page 1 (Ex: 1-3) or page two (Ex: 4-6). For what itís worth ñ the episodes are included in the disc in production order. The original air order is so erratic that production order simply works best." said..."In these times where choosing one’s words carefully is more important than ever, it’s typically best to avoid overdoing it with hyperbole. That said, The Muppet Show – Season One is the greatest DVD release of all-time, ever, anywhere."

MrCranky (who usually hates everything) said..."The DVD menus ñ which feature full-motion clips of Statler and Waldorf ñ are simple and easy to navigate. Viewers can play all episodes or choose an individual one."

So good stuff, for the guy who just up and left with little to know money and moved to L.A. After struggling for a while, got himself a great respectable job at 3oh5 Creative. He has also done work on the Disney Learning Adventures: Around the World in 80 Days and made a killer CG tornado for the Muppets Wizard of OZ DVD menu.

Way to go Steve! I'm proud of ya' bud!

While I'm dishing out props to everyone:

* Big props to my beautiful and talented wife Melissa, who just finished her portfolio online, so check it out and love it.
