Wolfpac reunite for “Forever” (Short Film-noir): Scoring (Christian and Nikolo)
Well, yeah man! `Reunited again to score for one night for Christian’s short film-noir entitle “Forever”. It’s funny cause I was supposed to stay for two nights but I always do stupid, clumsy decisions and you know, I ended up booking my return flight right away for that night. But nevertheless, the experience was great. I think we worked it well again especially with the wolf pac connection going on. Nothing beats brother team work!
Christian’s short-film noir, “Forever” takes a suspense, thrilling, weird kind of treatment. It’s exciting, mysterious and strangely continuous even in it’s non-linear story telling. And I find it really nice that our wolf, Christian edited this film personally. Now, you can see how he really tells his story visually through his cuts and camera movements.
I loved designing the score for his film. It was such a learning process for me even with just a short span of time and cause I’ve been wanting to score for a suspense themed film for a quite a while now. It’s been an itch and this moment was just right. Also, it just adds more juice that it’s in noir. That way, I get to experiment more. `Sort of like try to duplicate classical 1950’s scoring but with the modern twist. And so I ended up doing strange telephone reverse stings and more delusional piano scales. But what made everything extra complete for me was when I experimented with the wedding church bells. For Christian, he knew that this story wanted to go reverse to show what really happened and that’s what we did for the scoring as well.
I can’t wait `til he finally finishes it and upload it for people to see. I can’t wait either for Wolfpac’s next film to come out. `Til then, it’s script writings, story-boarding and more editing for us. `Ayt. Beast!
