This paper will analyze the cue Test Drive from the movie How to Train your Dragon and it will demonstrate which elements the composer uses to represent the characters’ feelings. The study will examine which specific melodies and instruments are associated with each feeling. The proposal is to find the compositional technique that the composer employs to associate each emotion with a specific melody or instrument, and therefore be able to reproduce these techniques in future compositions.
