This project provided some great challenges outside of the scope of a regular underscore. Many sequences in the film necessitated replacing copyrighted material captured by the original camera audio with original music that evoked the sound of the original. In addition to writing the replacement music, I also synchronized and mixed each piece to sound as if it was in the environments they were filmed in, creating a seamless mix. As this is a documentary of a high school dance show and competition, it was extra crucial to align the beats in sync with what was being filmed. It was an incredibly rewarding experience to create a full underscore, as well as saving the production team thousands of dollars from procuring the rights to music captured by the original camerawork.
