Lesson 3: Exploring Musical Ideas

- Carefully select music to take inspiration from. 

  Ask yourself why you've chosen that particular music? Why do you think it fits?

- Explore the sounds and instruments you think will fit the visuals you're working with.

- Explore scales and tonality to begin composing motifs and rhythms.


Lesson 4: SFX

- Using your cue sheet in Logic, explore extra sounds you should add to your project.

Lesson 5: Refine, Upload and Evaluate

- Exceptional: Create your own SFX and music that are synched perfectly in time with the moving images. The SFX are effective and professional and the music is an appropriate style and original.

- Very good: Use pre-recorded SFX, loops and music. They are carefully chosen and accurately placed in synch with the moving images. The advert and sounds are professional.
