90 second Epic (movie) Composition by Age of the Photons published on 2013/05/23 15:08:23 +0000 This is one of three 90 second compositions I wrote for a mock application for a film scoring workshop. We had to choose from a couple different movie genres and Epic was one of them. For each piece I decided to come up with a main character and overarching dramatic context, create musical themes for both, and then try and implement them together. For the Epic genre, I pictured the classic hero and a fantastical battle of good and evil. The main character will seem cold and hard outwardly and seem to have little potential as a hero, but will slowly develop into a caring and capable individual as he finds himself battling for the sake of humanity. The general dramatic overview will be about change and development, and of course good versus evil.
