Into The Maelstrom



(Click the play button on the image above to activate the QuickTime movie.)

No better way to take the viewer "into the maelstrom" than to have motion menus with movement
through a simulated starfield. These menus demonstrate the power of Apple's iDVD application,
as all assets from the starfield background to the overlay text to the accompanying audio
were compiled there.


Pink Floyd: The Reunion Concert



(Click the play button on the image above to activate the QuickTime movie.)

Another foray into 16:9 anamorphically-enhanced menus. A simple motion menu design with a
slow-moving blue sky background with audio playing from Pink Floyd's reunion appearance at
the Live 8 concert in London, England. Click here for additional images and more
information regarding this DVD.


Nathan Oliver Viral Reel



(Click the play button on the image above to activate the QuickTime movie.)

A very simple motion menu created for my friend and frequent collaborator, Nathan Oliver.
He wanted a video game motif, and what better game to choose than the NES classic
with your favorite "virus" fighter, Dr. Mario. With the exception of the video game
backplate, this menu was created entirely in DVD Studio Pro.


Hollywood Headshots



(Click the play button on the image above to activate the QuickTime movie.)

Accompanying the various still menus for the Hollywood Headshots DVD, I also created motion
menus for the chapter selections, as I am very much a fan of seeing parts of the main feature
play when selecting a chapter. You can view the still menus of the DVD by clicking the
DVD Still Menus link above, or by clicking here.


Night Surf



(Click the play button on the image above to activate the QuickTime movie.)

My very first title to feature motion menus. Teaching myself the basics of Adobe After Effects,
I made a simple composition with the beach and waves in the background with the title
and text buttons placed on top. Also features the movie playing various parts during
the chapter selections menus, much like my subsequent work on Hollywood
Headshots
. You can also view the still menus of the DVD by clicking the
DVD Still Menus link above, or by clicking here.
