Film Composition Videos

July 1, 2013 at 9:11 PM

This morning I watched a video interview on Murray Gold. I got a little bit out of it, in regards to my film composition, although it was still fun and interesting to watch the whole thing. See, I've started this folder where I will keep notes and old scores that could help me with my film composition for inspiration or ideas so that in the future I can just paw through those papers and check out some of my old thoughts and ideas. One of the things I think I may try is to write all my compositions for piano first. Then I can go back and orchestrate them how I like. I've already begun to do that, just writing small things, although for the summer film (we're doing a Doctor Who episode instead, not the one we'd originally planned), I'm having some friends write the script, and I haven't acquired it yet. It's very difficult to write music without knowing the script, so... I've taken to writing random things until it comes in my email.

For Harry Potter fans, I want to share this other video I found of a short medley of music from the fifth film. It's not really about composition, but I like it a lot. Enjoy!

Well, I'm rambling. The point is, check out the video if you wish. And in case I don't write then, have a great Fourth!
