Welcome to film scoring for beginners episode 4. How do you transform an original melody into different moods? Learn music arrangement tricks that I use to awake certain moods in a film score.
Film Scoring for beginners #4
In the Film Scoring for beginners episode 4 I show my work process when it comes to transforming music themes from one mood, to a totally different emotion.
We begin with a quite happy / heroic original melody which we created in the “Melody inspiration” video.
Theme variations in film scoring
In the film scoring for beginners part 4 video, we talk about the process of adjusting an original melody into:
- scary / mysterious theme
- suspensful / thriller theme
- nostalgic love theme
- adventure / hero theme
I spent a lot of time figuring out and preparing this video and I hope it will be helpful to you as a composer. Even if you are not writing for film or games I think this “thinking process” is nice to know and explore for any music producer.
