It’s a day late but worth it.
I am actually really proud of this film!
When I shot the footage (just over 3 weeks ago when I visited London – the very day I decided the Project was definitely going to happen) I knew exactly what kind of score I wanted in my head. I was feeling David Attenborough, Jane Austen, strings to the max.
Great, Great Britain, with rising violins soaring through my chest.
The score is far from perfect – I struggle a little bit with Garageband timing and I think a few of the notes are not quite on the intended beat – but all in all, it has a pretty nice crescendo, and it really gives me the Autumn feel I was looking for.
Garageband ‘Smart Strings’ are very aptly named… You can create staccato strings, plucking and hollywood romance all with one electronic instrument. Garageband is a seriously awesome free program, and I am so grateful it exists as I really can’t afford to buy expensive software while I’m in career transition stage (ie. unemployed).
I hope this gives you beautiful Autumn vibes. It’s my favourite season. And OMG I love squirrels.
