Buick to the Future DVD Menu

Creating DVD menus for my shorts and random edits used to be a big deal. It made an impression on those who I'd share my work with, and suggested just how much work went into the project. However, now that the basis for screening and previewing my work has shifted almost entirely onto the web, I haven't created a new menu in over a year. 

I was reviewing some of the videos that I have archived and found the components for Buick to the Future DVD that I made for my friend Tyler in 2009. This was really just a one off deal, where I was only making it because I wanted to give the four episodes to him as a gift for helping me make them. While the menu is comparatively straightforward when held up to some of the others I've done, what I love about this menu is how it highlights the buddy comedy aspect of the campy series along with some of the key scenes. 

This clip is really just a small slice of what the Buick to the Future project became, but hey, you can always watch the originals! And for more of the other random clips behind BTTF you can view the promo videos here

Still an appreciated gift and one of the best dvd menus ive ever seen. Elliots was also well done, as was the opening for ur christmas letter movie. Be fun to see those on here as well!!!

Well as I continue to look for more film school related projects and things to share, I think more of the test shots, exercises, and process type work will end up in posts of their own. Some of the things you mentioned Tyler are exactly the kinds of things that have only ever been seen by a few people.
