Chapter 13. DVD and Blu-ray Design > Preparing to Shoot Footage Plates for Menu...

Preparing to Shoot Footage Plates for Menus

A staple of menu design is subtle motion. We’re shocked at how many motion graphics designers have been trapped inside their computers, afraid to pick up a traditional design tool like a paintbrush or a camera. A favorite story of ours is about a designer posting to a support forum asking how to make fire. He expected a complex recipe involving particle effects. What he was told was a little more direct—“a match.”

Why do we bring this up? Well, we encourage you to free your mind and actually shoot some footage plates. You’ll learn how to turn everyday objects into beautiful motion graphics with just a little bit of light and some optical “squinting.”
