I was assigned the task off-putting together the score for the film. I had to find royal free music that we could use, that we could put with our animation without paying for music but still giving credit to the composer off the soundtracks used. The type off music the director would like to use was tribe like sound using wind and drum instrument, mood music for the settlement, holy type of sound for the inner ruins, suspense music and battle music.

I looked on YouTube to find these pieces off music, there’s a lot off good up and coming composers on there with many different tracks. I found three really good composers that I will be using for the short film.

I put together some scores for the film to test how it would be with the music using some of the tracks I download by these composers. I found a couple of tracks of ‘dark choir’ music that would be great for the scenes where the character goes into the cave, it gives off this mystical feel to it. Another great track I used was ‘Run’ this track is good for action and builds up tension, I use two parts of this track once with the scenes where the character is making his way to the fallen down pillar and the other scene where the character is running out the cave, escaping the creature.

In Adobe after effects I put the soundtrack I edit together with the final animation, render out a quick video seeing how it played out and put it on drop box for the director to see. He liked it and made some small edits like having the music start later and edit out some choir, monk songs towards the end.
