Film Music Posters: Creating A Mood! (Helpful Visual Aids)

Film Music Posters: Creating A Mood!

Why is film music important?

Film music can transport viewers, trigger their emotions and leave them hints.

Without music, viewers would find it difficult to invest in and digest a narrative.

Just imagine watching Harry Potter discover Hogwarts without the magical music (Hedwig’s Theme is an absolute classic), or reading through a Star Wars opening crawl without the bold sounds of John Williams’s iconic score

Use these visual aids to show how music in film is composed to create a mood specifically to match the atmosphere and the mood of the scene taking place.
