Composing: Doctor Sleep (Custom Pitch)

It’s Stephen King season again… The sequel to the 2017 highly successful IT reboot is about to hit cinemas and Doctor Sleep, the follow up to The Shining is not far behind it… We of course had to pitch!

Firstly we were asked to sent in a short cue intended to demo some SFX which could be used as toolkit for the initial campaign. Mike purchased a cheap kids chalkboard, some kids chalk and got to work recording some scrawling, he also managed to record some gas canisters and merge them into some atmospheric sound design to demo the potential use… This cue is called “SFX Toolkit Pitch V1.2” (see below).

This was followed by what was intended for use in the back end of one of the main trailers in which we reinvented Wendy Carlos & Rachel Elkind’s Main Titles theme by transcribing the progression and adding bigger horns, strings, hybrid percussive elements and of course stop downs.

The film is currently in post-production and at this time, we are unsure if the cue has been placed… The proposed cue is imaginatively entitled “RedRum2” give it a listen via the soundcloud embeds below!

Composing: 13 Reasons Why - Season 3 (Custom Pitch)

Netflix came knocking again, this time asking us to “trailerize” a couple of tracks to see if they would function against footage for their trailer for the upcoming season three of 13 Reasons Why.

We were given the full stems two tracks, Timber Timbre - Run From Me and These New Puritan - Into The Fire. From here, we essentially analysed the songs, set up the sessions accordingly and remixed them adding hybrid orchestral elements to both.

While the studio decided to ultimately use a different song entirely, the exercise was interesting and we think we came up with some cool ideas.

Composing : The King (Custom Pitch)

We have been asked to compose and pitch a short trailer cue for consideration of placement in the upcoming David Michôd directed Netflix film, “The King”.

While the brief was somewhat descriptive, the only real base information given was that “The screenplay is adapted from the plays Henry V and Henry IV Part I & II by William Shakespeare”.

That being said, for those who know the story of Henry IV, we know what to expect in terms of story; what’s going to be the most interesting is the approach taken.

The film is currently in post-production and at this time, we are unsure if the cue has been placed… The proposed cue is entitled “Monarch”, give it a listen via the soundcloud embed below!





Composing : Jurassic World 2 - Fallen Kingdom (Custom Pitch)

We are thrilled to have been asked to compose music for consideration for the upcoming teaser trailer for the new Jurassic World film, “Fallen Kingdom”. These are currently with the trailer house, fingers and toes are all firms crossed!

EDIT: 01/08/2019
Mike was so close, but our pithes didn’t quite make the cut… Mike took a very organic approach as directed, but ultimately a more modern approach was adopted. We have been able to release the tracks and Mike did a run through of both pitches on his Youtube channel. We have embedded both cues below and the walkthroughs below and hope you enjoy them! Pitch 2 is our personal favourite, but let us know which approach you like the best!
