Music Choices- Pretty Reckless- You make me wanna die http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYeGw-bo430&ob=av2e For the beginning of the trailer we wanted something slow and eerie which we found in this song and for the original idea of the trailer this song was perfect because the words used matched the storyline of the trailer. However, because our trailer is very short, unless we edit a lot of this song out it may not sound right which we don’t want and the build up from slow to fast isn’t quick enough for our trailer.
Avenged Sevenfold- Nightmare http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=94bGzWyHbu0 This song has a very slow, very eerie beginning which is perfect for the atmosphere we’re trying to create for the beginning of the trailer and slowly builds up into guitars which we could edit in when the antagonist snaps one of the victims neck. However during the end of the trailer it gets even more serious so really because of the length of the song and the slow part at the beginning of the song, the whole trailer will be in slow, eerie music which may work but at the same time may not. The music sounds like something played at a funeral which would add the perfect feeling the our trailer as it shows different people being hurt or killed and the protagonist being harmed.
Eyes set to kill – Violent Kiss http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HEJAPQy00PE While this song has the perfect semantics behind the meanings we are trying to portray in the film, the opening of the song starts too quickly which isn’t ideal for what we are trying to achieve. If this song had a slower opening and then built up into the song, it would be perfect as the audience would have been able to listen to the song and notice it was based around vampires.
Paramore – Decode http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RvnkAtWcKYg This song is originally taken from twilight which has the same type of genre as the film we are trying to make. While the song starts with a very slow and eerie beginning like we were hoping to have at the beginning of the trailer, we wanted the music to build up so when the antagonist goes on her killing rampage the music could tie in with her anger. This song however has a constant slow speed and rhyme to it so it isn’t ideal for what we are trying to achieve.
