Scoring an animated short film - 'Hey Deer!'
- Published on: Saturday, January 23, 2021
- In this clip I work on a new skill – to understand how to ensure the music sits well in the mix with the sound effects. It is my first score where I don’t have to underscore all the dramatic moments because the sound design is available. Shout out to Ors Barczy for creating a timeless piece that’s somewhat relevant during this 2021 lockdown.
The original piece itself goes with a simplistic guitar based score which allows the script to breath and the storyline to be the centre of the viewers’ attention. You can check that out here: https://www.okclips.net/video/O1C9zOQpKG4/video.html
I tried to also be minimalistic with my score and allow the transitions to breath and there are multiple moments where there is no music whatsoever. I had fun writing to this score, it was different and a unique opportunity to score in a manner that engages the listener but also leaves room for inquisition. I hope ye love it, leave a comment below with your views on the storyline and/ or pointers on a different approach to the score.
