music Film Score Themes & Variations (for Filmmakers)

I thought I'd share with all of you one of my "theme development sketch projects" that I use to explore ideas in preparation for a feature film score. In this case, it was the score for "Go Fish" (2019), an animated feature film (https://pro.imdb.com/title/tt10920376/)

This project contains all my initial ideas for themes and their variations, as well as some other ideas. Some of these are pretty rough, while others are fairly detailed and fully orchestrated. All of them are really just fragments of ideas that would later be fleshed out and incorporated into the final score against picture. Thought you guys might enjoy seeing this. It's a really fun process and makes the job of scoring 90+ minutes of music FAR more enjoyable and a great deal faster.
