Julian Croot replied to P.Petridis's discussion She's a fairytale-music trailer
"Another stunning piece of work.The delicate opening is interesting and beautifully produced, and as has already been said the transition is superb.

My personal preference would be for a stronger melody, but the drama you've created is impressive."

Anders Christensen replied to Julian Croot's discussion Filmscore production sample

  • Hey Julian - The progression and orchestration are definitely in the 'epic' Hollywood victory genre etc...a move in the right direction if that's what you're shooting for. Looking forward to hearing more!

    Cheers - Ryan
