Re: Film Scoring thread

Definitely feeling the Hitchcock vibe that you're going for there. It's a shame that you didn't make it on time for S&S, but with a great premise (and a really good score) I look forward to viewing the final project.

Re: Film Scoring thread

I got a new computer just the other day, and decided to try out Mixcraft on it. With a much more powerful processor and a bit more RAM than my last computer, I wanted to see how many different VST instruments tracks that I could have before the program would max-out.

I decided to stop at 12 (the program was still running fine, with less that 50% CPU overall used), and this is the result. I'd probably mix a bit more if this was going to be used in a brickfilm, but, as it is, I don't think it's half bad!

Re: Film Scoring thread

Shakespearean Fantasy was meant to sound a bit more like a play rather than the beginning of an epic medieval adventure. Although Game of Thrones type stories aren't exactly my cup of tea, I sort of like this piece. Too bad it wouldn't fit with any current brickfilms I've got planned.

Either way, have a listen. mini/smile

Shakespearean Fantasy sounds amazing, Dyland! mini/smile

Re: Film Scoring thread

I never thought that the default instruments in mixcraft (even with it's excellent convolution reverb) sounded quite natural enough. So, I downloaded some free vst orchestra packs, found an orchestra placement, panning, and reverb template sheet, and went to work.

This was the result: Military March

A sort of mash-up of John Williams' Indiana Jones themes combined with the eerie factor Danny Elfman so easily encompasses in his works. Aside from a bit of a muddy wind section, I think I like it!

Edit: Kinda sad to see that not many others have been posting music much this year... I used to love cycling through this thread reading everything everyone had contributed.

Re: Film Scoring thread

@Dyland: Nice piece. I think the instruments sounded clean; while you'll never get the sound of a real orchestra out of digital console, that set will certainly do in a pinch. You're right about the wind section being a little muddy, but overall I think it was fine.

Unfortunately, I was very busy at University this year, and wasn't able to do much scoring. So here's something cheap I slammed together yesterday...

I'm making a theme song for my upcoming Time Cruisers film, here's the instrumental demo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TfG9T3ut1ak mini/smile Any feedback would be appreciated!

Re: Film Scoring thread

@Arginnon This is quite nice. I love your distortions and flickers, adds to the space vibe. Plus the hard drums and synths give it a nice retro flavor, which seems to be in line with your film.

Re: Film Scoring thread

I think so too. Have you ever watched one of those youtube videos where they play different music underneath the same scene? Some of it is really funny

Re: Film Scoring thread

Been a while, but I finally got this out on Soundcloud. Hope you all enjoy.

Re: Film Scoring thread

Might as well post this here as well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f6fNwMjDCrc

Special Thanks to Funmi for uploading such a video for me! mini/smile

For the score of Hollow Earth III, I wanted to take the music in a bit more of a John Carpenter direction, without going too Stranger Things. This being the final act of a trilogy, however, necessitated me to make sure that the new music fit with the other two scores (one of which wasn't even my own).

Overall, it was fun to revisit some themes and keep the overall tone and sound in line with Funmi's artistic direction, while still trying out some new things!

Enjoy mini/smile

Re: Film Scoring thread

This was done on short order (only had 4 days notice before deadline), but, quickly became one of my favorite projects to compose for. When Barrels Fly Original Score.

A re-release of Andrew Bermudez's (Mustache Maniacs') THAC 8 brickfilm for their 10th anniversary online, I opted to go with a banjo, woodwind, & snare heavy score to emphasize the main character's soldier background.

Also sprinkled throughout are a fairly liberal use of traditional classics (such as the National Anthem, Oh Suzannah, and Oh My Darling, Clementine), and even has a nod to John Williams' Jurassic Park theme!

Definitely a fun project to work on! BTW, here's the final film, if you're so inclined: When Barrels Fly.

Edit:]

And here's the score for Shawarma Studios' Spirit of Adventure entry, "Colorblind." A World of Monochrome

Heavy Danny Elfman inspirations on this track. Especially in the 1989 Batman score!
