So I followed a 3 day masterclass about film music by horror composer Christopher Young, as an assignment we had to create some music based on the intro visuals from Drag me To Hell so I came up with this. Learned so much in the three days.

Yo Newgrounds,

It's been a while but I'm posting more stuff here again. Last week I made this 13 minute over the top track for a lightshow here in the netherlands:
 


Also check out my other latests uploads:
 


 




And there's more to come soon!







Did all the music, sound design and editing myself, all footage is from the original Godzilla Film.  At 0:37 and 0:47 you can also hear a Godzilla roar which I made the same way as they did in the original one by recoring a couple of Double Bass takes and speeding it up.

 


THANKS NEWGROUNDS + TRAILER FOR MY SHORT FILM

Requiem - Trailer Sebastien Romero Vimeo

 

Hello Newgrounders, it's been a while since I posted here. When i started out here on newgrounds around 10 years ago I was making animations, a few years later I started making games, some years later I was making music and now the time has come that I'm making movies :P

Right now I'm following a study for making (film) music, and on the side I'm taking jobs linked to film such as cinematographer etc. To think what kind of impact Newgrounds had on my life, because of Newgrounds I started animating and because of Newgrounds I was able to make money making games, to buy new instruments to learn.

Right now I'm working on a new short film (the trailer above the text) and I starteda crowdfunder for it because my wallet is getting empty. Feel free to support me any way you like (or not) by donating or spreading the video around.
You can find the crowdfunder here:

I do almost everthing myself except for the acting, so I'm doing the writing, storyboarding, filming, editing, sound design and the music. I recently did the same for this movie:

Thanks Newgrounds :)


 

 

 



I was working on this new song when suddenly the file crashed so I had to work with the bounced temp track I had left  , oh well I still decided it was worth uploading even though it is not fully complete or mixed.


Check out this Team Fortress animated short

Recently I've been creating some new music, this time for a 3 minute short created by Deremix.

Check out the short and feel free to give him all the support he needs :)

Also I'll probably post less music here on Newgrounds,because you can't remove the free download button which I would like to do for some of my songs. If you would like to be updated with ALL my latest tracks ad movies you can subscribe to my facebook channel: https://www.facebook.com/sebastienromeromusic

I feel pretty bad about this, but if the download song function would be optional in the audio portal then I would keep posting everything on here.

Cheers,
Sebastien

 



 

 

 



 

My entry for the 48 hour film project in Rotterdam. I won the awards for Best Music and Best Cinematography so that's not too bad for a first try :)
I also got nominated for Best Editing, Audience Award and Best Film


It's a contest where you and your team need to create a shot film within 48 hours given a specific genre, prop, character name and line.

I shot most of the film at night and I recorded the music at daytime while also editing and writing scripts.
All the light is done with either natural light or a simple flashlight.



I was planning on doing a voice over on the track but I did not have any time for it yet. I'll probably do it next month or something.
