    Broken Oath Now Available for Viewing on my Website

    Hey guys

    Want to watch one of my films done with GPO? I have placed "Broken Oaths" on my web site. It is in streaming Windows Media Format. Please check it out and let me know what you guys think. Here's the link.

    Hi Jonny!
    I watched this the other night and just loved it. The music you composed went so well with the action of the movie and added much to the angst that the characters were feeling. Great job! It was so neat to see the final project. Kudos!

    Overall, I was really impressed. The whole film was done very well, and the score wasn't bad either.

    I hope you don't mind if maybe I offer some "constructive criticism", though. I thought maybe for a film like this, which is basically an examination of the darker side of human nature and revolves around themes of violence, betrayal and corruption, it might have been more in keeping with the film to have a darker score.

    Specifically, I would have gone for something very similar to Howard Shore's score for "The Game" - something murky, with a fair bit of reverb, using barely any woodwinds and a lot of dissonant tinklings on the piano, with ominous rumblings played on cello and bass sections. Also, I would have spent a lot of time in the lowest ranges of the instrument, eschewing the brighter-sounding higher octaves.

    Again, it was good music and a good film, and I guess a lot of this comes down to personal taste, but to be completely honest - it sounded a little cartoony at times. Which is fine in its own right, but probably not what would best suit a film like this.

    Otherwise, excellent stuff! I enjoyed it very much. Hope I wasn't too harsh there.
