    Smile OT: Video Demo, Gladiator with my original music.

    Ok, first of all I'd like to say that, by NO MEANS do I think that Hanz Zimmer's score to gladiator is need of reworking. THe only reason that I did this scene was because it is one of my favorite movies of all time and I thought that the highly emotional content of the video would inspire me to write something decent. I actually did this piece a year and a half ago but never had a way to post the video part of it. So I recently bought a cheap video production tool (software) and dubbed my music into the video. I also tried to dub in the dialogue on another track with so-so results. Please dont grade me on that part as it was the best I could do with the original score still playing in the background of it. I tried to snip out just the words as best as possible. I'd also like to mention that this was done before I owned any orchestral libraries. It was done with a Roland XP-30, E-mu Virtuoso, and Symphony of Voices in Halion. Finally ( as if I havent already made enough excuses for myself ), the video HAD to be in WMV (crappy) format to be uploaded onto my host, acidplanet.com. Hope you enjoy and feedback is always welcome.

    OK, I think I've got it working now. It takes a little while for it to buffer but it does work. Sorry about the bad link earlier.

    Thanks so much Larry for the kind words. I would have loved to rerender this with GPO when I got it but after getting started, I realized that sometimes it's good to leave well enough alone. Had I had GPO from the begining it would have been different. Thanks again.

    Eric! What a glorious treatment of this section of film! Most, most impressive! Bravo x 1,000! Passionate, reserved-yet-powerful, and highly evocative.

    See, I think this is great: the whole notion of taking a piece of existing film you love, and putting your own musical stamp on it. It's a great way to teach yourself. It's a fantastic chance to "build" music for scenework, as opposed to through-composing a piece. I'm all for it.

    Wonderful work, Eric. Kudos!

    Nice Job! I enjoyed it very much. Great way to enhance your sound-to-picture demo reel, too.
