The Music of The Lost Crystal of Sakara: A Reflective Paper
The purpose of this project is to provide an analytical discussion about the creation of my culminating experience project of the Scoring for Film, TV, and Video Games program: the music for the trailer of “The Lost Crystal of Sakara” by the Chilean director Ignacio Walker. This includes the process to find the project, the analysis of the story, working with the director, and the research for musical and orchestration ideas. Furthermore, I explain the complete creative process which includes the composition, the leitmotifs of the main characters, the orchestration, the preparation of the Vienna Ensemble Pro and Cubase template, as well as the creation of the final mockup. Finally, I describe the preparation for the recording and the submission which includes the music preparation (score and parts) and the Pro Tools session. I hope this will help further students and film composers to get extra ideas about the process of writing the music for a film and its story.
