Plain Jane Title Sequence
Meet Jane. She is ordinary, awkward, and completely terrified to ask her longtime crush out on a date. And that's… where we come in. The CW came to Colourmovie to create an identity, title sequence and show package for their show Plain Jane.

We built the narrative and design by blending a metaphor based on metamorphosis along with classic 50's how-to demonstration videos. With this theme we shot our All-American cast in simple iconic poses and shot Louise Roe demonstrating the process. In animation we highlighted the metamorphosis and created a beautiful cloth animation accentuated by a delicate particle system of glints, and reflective elements. This particle system envelops our heroine, revealing her natural beauty and transforming her from frumpy to fabulous.
