We focused more on the visual side in this piece, but I do want to touch on the all important sound. Music should be a bonus. Don’t rely on the music to push the story. The story should be strong and come across that way even if the film was on mute. Just because the music is sad, does not mean the audience will feel sad if the visuals don’t go along with it. But when done right, music is the icing on the cake.
There are a lot of libraries out there with scores, and if done right, these can work well. The music has to be just right for the mood. We’ve been told that our results are often amazing.
