This is probably something that doesn't get asked here often, but I have a question about what Emotion I should evoke with music on a scene.
You see I'm scoring a 12 minute student film that was made just to give the director practice with his editing skills. So there is no plot at all. But here is the jist of it.
1.) Man sees another man boxing up a body in a warehouse.
2.) Other man sees him, the start chaing each other for 5 minutes
3.) The chaser eventually hides, hits his enemy..they duke it out for awhile, then proceeds to shot the man in the forehead
4.) the audience sees that oil and microchips, not blood comes out from the head, you see this guys kills robots for a living in the future.
5.) He then proceeds to box up this new body and there is a 4 minute long sequence of him rolling the box along a conveier belt where you see there are tons of boxes containing robots.
This last scene is where I'm having trouble. I'm not sure to celebrate the robots death or to be saddened by it, since the audience is never hinted at which is the good guy. Right now I'm making a slow string piece that modulates between Major and Minor. the director said he really doesnt know and I just dont know..any suggestions?
