Film Production – Composer’s Journal


In this project I took the earthquake scene from the film “The Wind Rises” and composed a song for it to replace the original sound in the film. My song used a m6m chord progression to convey danger.

What I Learned and Problems I Solved

In this project I learned how to compose music for film. I learned how different 2 chord progressions give different feelings to the songs and what ones to use for the tone of the scene in the film. I had trouble finding the right instruments to use in my composition, so I ended up using mostly orchestral instruments because I know that many movie soundtracks use orchestras.
