I thought you fine folks might enjoy a few spec film cues that I put together over the last few days. The mainstay was GPO, with different emphasis on various sections throughout, alluded to below.
Backstory - an opening credits cue using \"Elizabeth\" as a back drop. Focus here was to blend the baroque plenum organ (and the flutes register, in the beginning) with orchestra.
Engineering Dispute - a family favorite scene from the 13th Warrior. Here there\'s only percussion, brass and low woodwinds. My compliments to the bass clarinet and contrabasson players, Mr. Garritan. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
Portraits - an interesting transitional clip from \"Brotherhood of the Wolf\", focussing on the solo violin and flute weaving in and out of each other in the beginning and the short bows in the second section. Folks who are offended by nudity (Monica Belluci, no less) should just avert your eyes or play the MP3. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
Not Unscathed - a re-scoring of the \"LOTR, Fellowship...\" scene where they escape from the Mines of Moria right after Gandolf follows the Balrok into the abyss. The effort here was to outline shock-to-dispair-to-pick-up-and-move-on with a hobbit-like tag at the end. Aside from GPO, this one uses DIVA piped through an atmospheric impulse from the Spektral Relativity collection.

Each cue is available in WMV9, QT5, and MP3 formats. Enjoy.

2 stars? I would have to give you 5 stars on all of this music and hard work!!
Oh wait, now I\'m going to lose a star for saying that LOL
Nice job, H3
[/ QUOTE ]LOL - thanks so much for the kind words. Honestly, it\'s not as difficult as it would seem - each cue was created in less than a day. Because of the beauty of working with GPO in Kontakt and DIVA in HALion, selecting sounds was a cinch and turning focus to the creative side has become my assumed mode of working - it\'s truly a spoiling experience. It was actually much more difficult to select the right impulse from the hundreds that are in the Spektral Relativity collection. Thanks again.

Very nice job--what other libraries did you use?

Thanks. Everything was GPO except for Gigasamples from Worra\'s Place and G-town. My fave from Worra\'s Place is the Terkelson Mandolin; from G-town I\'m torn between the waterbowls and Darbouka samples. Everything was converted into Kontakt for these mini-projects, but I have also converted several of these sounds into HALion format. None of them use a particularly dense Giga file, so they\'re not a big challenge to convert.
Very impressive. Even manipulating the video must have taken some time. I wouldn\'t have know whether the music was the original or not. It all seemed to fit perfectly. Only the solo violin somewhere stuck out as being synthetic.
My favourite was Back Story. I also liked the video artistry in this one.
