“I watched them fight and die in the name of freedom. They speak of liberty and justice. But for who?”
“This is a story of an ordinary mortal who, against all odds, clashes with devilish demons and the ancient celestials in order to find his own path to immortality.”
“We must continue to fight and defend the free will of the people. And no matter how small, our brotherhood is the only hope.”
“Where one story ends, another begins.”
This is the Wilhelm scream of movie trailers. I was commissioned to put this little piece together for a talk that composer Mark Petrie gave recently. He wanted to highlight the ubiquitous BRAAAM sound that was popularized by the trailer for Inception and has since gone on to appear in dozens of trailers. It started […]
This one isn’t finished just yet. There is a lot of subtle timing that needs to be done before I consider it finished.
