Imaginary Film Soundtrack Challenge 2017
Tuesday, August 15 2017 @ 10:37 PM CDT

Here is the challenge

Let's try to write some music to accompany a film, or a single scene from that has not yet been made. Let your imagination run wild. Your score for the imaginary film can have been made at any time, can be whatever genre you want and can have any actresses, actors or directors that you like. maybe you have had the chance to collaborate with Ennio Morricone, John Williams, Phillip Glass or Hans Zimmer on the score, or maybe you have done it all yourself.

To participate, you must answer the following questions (they can be answered here OR when you upload your music)

1) What is the title of your film?
2) What genre is it?
3) Who is the director?
4) Who is in the starring role(s)?
5) What is the name of the music track from your film? describe the scene that it is used with.

Today's date is Aug 15 2017.

The premier of your film is on Friday 15 September, so the music had better be done by then!

You will get bonus points for this challenge if it actually has a film/moving images to accompany the music (but it doesn't matter if your film is truly imaginary though - in every possible sense of the word)

So far, the budding composers include

Sounds like fun. I'll play.

I'll come up with something new by the deadline, but first, I'll warm up with something I did several years ago.

Theme from Invaders from Beyond Outer Space!

From Director Howard Hawks comes the story of EVIL ALIEN INVADERS who come from somewhere beyond the universe! Experience TERROR as evil alien overlord GENERAL ZEVRON (Kenneth Tobey) brings his army of robot soldiers the Earth. As the armies of the Earth are rendered useless, only Captain Jack Miller (James Arness) and Professor Robert Hilliard (Michael Rene), along with intrepid reporter Lena Atwood (Faith Domergue), stand between the people of Earth and the SAVAGE INVADERS.

Will they be able to stop the INVADERS FROM BEYOND OUTER SPACE!?

Ok, I'll give it some thought. It sounds an interesting idea and I'll join in if I can find the time.

Cool idea Bryn. I'll see if I can cook something up. It's been ages since I've done anything like this. Chris and I are doing a live accompaniment dance score the next few weeks. 'The Red Shoes' could be a start. Who might be the charming young composer?

More to come.

It's better to regret something you have done, than something you haven't done.

Hm. Coincidence has it that I just posted something orchestral-soundtrack-ish (using the EXS24 samples, which really don't hold up) but I hadn't thought about the movie to go with it. Hm.

Sneaky tune
