Safety Last! DVD Menus

These are some of the menu designs I created for the Criterion Collection edition of Harold Lloyd's Safety Last! I don't think you can help but ask during the movie's building climbing, clock dangling climax, "is that for real?". The answer to the question is more surprising and nuanced than one might expect. Even the film's plot even gets pretty meta on the subject. What's not revealed in the story is amply and rewardingly so in the generous supplements for the release. For the DVD menus as well as the packaging I looked to inject some reality tweaking into the design by building the type into the shots.
