The underlying purpose and intent of the project described below is to establish an open communication regarding the process creating a film music score for the film Burying Yasmeen, from the beginning to the end. The analytical and theoretical approach to the music described below is intended to aid in the process behind the creation of film music as well as encourage an in-depth discussion of how film music is designed to benefit and support a visual narrative. For the data collection, much of the compositional process was documented in a personal diary that has been kept up to date since January 2015, as well as personal emails between me and the director. Examples and descriptions of different themes and motifs are given below in clarity in order to understand different types of orchestration and composition when creating music for film. This project was designed to provide sufficient evidence to fulfill the Degree of Master of Music in Scoring for Film, Television, and Video Games at Berklee College of Music. It is my hope that the paper in its entirety will be of help, benefit, and enjoyment for musicians and non- musicians alike, as well as provide an in-depth look at the work involved on a film score for future students at Berklee College of Music.
