I composed the original score for this documentary trailer for Vancouver film maker Mike McKinlay. The film ‘3 Waters: A Journey Through The Salish Sea’ is currently in production and scheduled for completion in Spring of 2015. My responsibilities in working on this trailer included:
• Original Musical Score
• Dialogue Restoration and Editing
• Full Service Audio Post-Production
“Mark is a rare find. I've been working in the industry as a filmmaker for approximately 15 years and to find a sound designer and musician as talented and dependable as Mark is absolute GOLD to any producer or director looking for quality music score.” - Mike McKinlay, Owner and Cinematographer at Mike McKinlay Productions
Composing the score for this trailer posed several unique challenges. Foremost was working within the limitations set by the temp music used in the original video edit. Much of the shot selection was already chosen and I had to develop the dynamic progression of the music to fit the existing footage as closely as possible. Once the music was near completion the timing of the video edits and titling were finalized and I was then able to add the finishing touches to the music and mix.
