My Berklee Film Scoring Final Project

Hello again!

Now that my final semester at Berklee is over and I've had some time to catch my breath, I am proud to present Mr.Resistor, my Film Scoring final project!

This score was an unprecedented task for me, as it is probably one of the most demanding things I have written music for. Not only I was tasked with writing and recording wall-to-wall music for an 8 minute short in half a semester, but it was also challenging music to sync with the picture since I wanted to do quite a bit of Mickey Mousing, where the music heavily follows the action on screen like in old cartoons. The numerous tempo changes almost drove me crazy! I'm sure all my fellow classmates can relate and, like me, breathed a sigh of relief once it was all over. It was definitely a challenge, but a necessary one in furthering my craft as a film composer. I'm glad I did it, and I had a blast during the process.

All in all, I am quite happy with the finished product and I feel like the hard work paid off in the end. I'd also like to say a special thank you to all the musicians who played on this score, it gave it the extra bit of life that it needed!

If you watched it, feel free to let me know what you think. All feedback is welcome!
