Looking for a Soundtrack

Today we looked for the much needed soundtrack to put into our film opening. After watching films like ‘Gone Girl’ and ‘Psycho’, it is clear to see that a fitting soundtrack has a big effect on the atmosphere which is being created. Not only that but, it helps fit the conventions of the genre the film opening is in. Our film portrays different feelings, such as: grief, sadness, anger, tension and suspense. We didn’t want a soundtrack which was too “overpowering” since we wanted the diegetic sound of the outside to also be hearable. What we had in mind was a solo and sombre piano so, we looked at different websites to find the music we were looking for.

The website we went on was ‘freemusicarchive.org’ which is a free music website where the music isn’t copyrighted.

There are filters on this website which are really helpful in finding what we needed to put into our film opening. After a while, we found the music we were looking for:
