For the summer project I must make something that suits the music that was given to me. It can be a story, a character, an environment, anything that suit the music. The file that was given to me was soundscape 30.
Here is the sound track if you want to listen to it.
At first I thought it has a sense of thriller, but while listening to the music carefully I felt it carries more of a hunting theme, so I decided to focus on that.
The first idea was to make my own predator (not the one in the movies) that was snake like or any creature that moves silently and strike in a manner that makes the prey scared, since at points in the music had a gentle elegant tone mostly near the beginning of the music and ends with loud music which carries a conflicting tone.
But while listening to the music I then started to get visions of people camping in the jungle around a camp fire. Only to get picked off one by one by unknown predators. I know it sound over used but that was the feeling I got from the music. The predators are actually shadowy figures while the people are either hunters themselves or poachers or maybe just a group of people carrying weapons. This story ends with the last person escaping and the shadowy figures following him. The figures grab the person and drags him back to the pack, the figures then finishes the person off screen.
Another idea was to have a tribe of people hunting animals actually show how the tribe watches it's prey before they strike. The setting for this story was set in the days when the woolly mammoths were still alive and the mammoths are the victims while the tribes are the hunters.
I like the idea with the people beginning hunted by the shadowy figures, and the one with the tribe hunting animals. I'm still deciding on which one I should follow. If anyone reading this please send some feedback.
