Topic: Rejected film cue...for your enjoyment

    Red face Rejected film cue...for your enjoyment

    Hi Everyone,

    Here's a film cue that I prepared (that was rejected) for a short film. It's the first time that I've ever worked from a script, and I'm happy overall with how it turned out. I just thought that I'd share. I hope that you enjoy. It's at the bottom of the list...called "The Suffering". The Vocal will be replaced with DIVA once I'm feeling up to getting everything up and running...


    Thanks for listening,

    This was GREAT!

    I love the added vocals in it. And the driving undercurrent of strings gave it an uneasy quality. VERY NICE.

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful cue - Sorry it didn't get picked. But I am sure that with each opportunity, things will get better and better for you.

    Wow! Nice big and gutsy cue! Can you explain a bit of the context for the cue? I'd also love to know which libraries you used.

    I'm in the midst of working on a short film too, and am on version 3 of one cue, version 2 of another, and version 5 of yet another, so I feel your pain.

    Maybe we can get Chris to do a Composer Channel show called the Graveyard of Rejected Scores...

    Thanks Jerry!! You're too kind! I do hope that you're right!!

    Hi jmc!
    Thanks!! The context is betrayal, pain and self realization...that's all I can say...I'm under no-disclosure...
    I had a week to do the cue, but lost 5 days due to oral surgery and complications etc...(and by being completely drugged out of my mind... ) so I had to work really fast. Time constraints (and brain fogginess...) dictated which libraries I used. Thanks for listening

    Great work Steph!

    Sounded like a terrific Film score...Strong lead horns, with a nice driving percussion section!

    .. and the vocals blended perfectly.

    Hi jsp2
    Thanks so much for listening!! I'm glad that it came across as being as strong as I intended!! Thanks for your kindness!!

    Hi Styxx!!
    Wow! Such wonderful compliments to brighten my day!! Thank you so much. It helps me feel better!! Maybe, this cue will grow into something larger, and for something bigger in scale - I can only hope!! I am quite proud of it given the circumstances I know that I CAN write from a script Thanks so much!
