Re: The Film Scoring challenge!

I was thinking we'd wait until just around the new year to reboot the challenge, but, if enough people are up for it earlier, than I'd love to see If I Were A Minifig come up with something for us to score around a christmas theme perhaps...?

Otherwise, I was going to sort of "re-instate" myself as leader on the 4th, and suggest something... just to see if anyone was still interested (especially after THAC and the holidays).

I'd really like to see this thread continue mini/smile I really had a lot of fun with it.

Re: The Film Scoring challenge!

Alright. I hope everyone had a great Christmas. I will announce a challenge theme tomorrow, so everyone be ready. It'll be just a short something to keep everyone occupied till THAC XIII!!!

With Cooked Cat's objection to Christmas themed topics in mind, I hope to have something engaging. I just really want people to participate.

I'd suggest waiting on the inevitable "Star Wars" themed topic until after THAC... And, honestly, I would like to do a Christmas theme, but, I'll wait and see what you do come up with. Either way, I'd love to participate. Hopefully this challenge can stick around a bit longer this time.

Re: The Film Scoring challenge!

So... with Dyland's StarWars themed objections, I shall continue seeking a nice little tidbit to score before THAC. Actually, I think I've got just the thing...

Re: The Film Scoring challenge!

Here is this week's contest theme:

Write a piece of music to accompany this Sci-fi indie film trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NU7ghbb7owg

You have until next Sunday to complete and submit an entry. It would be great it it was synced to the video, but not required.

Also (to appeal to Cooked Cat's interest), I thought Kylo Ren's new main theme lacked... well... the force mini/lol of Darth Vader's "Imperial March." As a suggestion for a future contest theme, we could create our own Kylo Ren theme. Just throwin' that out there.

Re: The Film Scoring challenge!

sorry for triple post.

win by default?

Re: The Film Scoring challenge!

Yes indeed.

Your piece was good, it fit the trailer quite well. My only real suggestion would be adding more to the Bass. I couldn't really hear anything below, generally, midrange pitches, but that might just be my speakers.

Anyway, good show. The topic is yours!

Sweet. Any ideas?

Re: The Film Scoring challenge!

We could go with the Kylo Ren theme I suggested, since his theme in SW7 was did not live up to the imperial march.

Or you could find a short scene or trailer of some kind for us to score.

Re: The Film Scoring challenge!

i'd also like to do the kylo ren thingy you see, but be competing. if we could find someone else to judge, then, sure, if not, how about, lets say,
this scene: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dnRxQ3dcaQk
given the music isnt very loud, and it is using mainly the sound effects for suspense, I was thinking, some of you folks could have a go at scoring it....

Re: The Film Scoring challenge!

I like the idea, but the scene is a little long for just one week... just a thought.
