Hey guys .. been a while since I posted anything here so here's something I did recently for the Vancouver B Movie Factory TV Show (Episdoe 16). I also was the film editor on that show so I had the supreme luxury of being able to cut the film, the way I wanted to and then score it .. and then to make changes to the film after I'd written the music :D

I can tell you ... being an editor is like having super powers :P

At B Movie Factory what we do is essentially a short film challenge and the TV Program documents our progress is we spend a week making a short film. We have typically 6-8 hours to shoot, and a week of post production. This particular short film is called 'The Damnation' and was inspired by our guest star who is a creature FX make up designer. He came to use with some 'creepy monster clown' prosthetics that he could wear and become our 'monster' for the show. And so in short .. we made a very atmospheric horror episode (just in time for xmas :P), and here's the music that I wrote for it.

The Damnation - Music score (Soundcloud) 

The music is all written with VSL and a few hits of Omnisphere here and there for the weirder noises. Mixed with Vienna Suite and Steve Slate Plugs. I would have done this with MIR but sadly there's so little time to get the film done that I couldn't spend time wrestling with MIR.

And for those who are interested .. here's the film .. if you search the B movie factories youtube channel you can watch the whole TV program too.

Vancouver B Movie Factory - Episode 16 (The Damnation)

Anyways, a bit of fun and it was very satisfying to make this film. It's not perfect by any means .. but then it wouldn't be a film challenge if it was all perfect. Funny enough I had the film editted within 1 day .. but It took me 6 days to write the music ?!? Hope you like!
