This 34 minute soundtrack from recently released epic fan film Star Wars: "Revelations" (http://www.panicstruckpro.com/revelations/revelations.html) was produced almost entirely with EWQLSO Gold and choirs from Silver. I tried to envision what John Williams would have written for the movie & make it as realistic as possible. The film was made by a team of volunteers from around the world on no budget, and has had more than 2 million downloads in as many weeks!

Chris,

I saw the film when you posted this on another thread and I listened to the entire score. The fact that it was done on vitually no budget its truely amazing. That shows alot of dedication from alot of people. The score is also great. It's obvious that you put alot of time into it, and you have alot of talent. I like the subtle use of John Williams theme in some areas. Excellent work, I'm sure you will get alot of work form this. Perfect weekend to post it too! ;)

Great job on the music Chris. It must have been daunting trying to follow what must be one of the most famous movie scores of all time, however, you've done an awesome job. The music was very reminiscent of the original and your slight manipulation of the original score works well. It must have been great fun to do, and I'm very envious :) I was thinking of doing a gold version of SW myself, it would be a good way I think to get to grips with the subtleties of gold.

How long did it take you to compose?

Hope you get lots of work from your efforts,

Congratulations :D

Glad people have seen it already... small world! I thought i should post here seeing as this is the new home of EWQLSO.

ChrisE, thanks for asking how long it took. It's hard to say, timelocked scenes started being delivered 3 months before the score deadline... by then i only had 2 or 3 rough themes prewritten and agreed by the director (and Shane's a hard man to please). Not quite sure how long it took, but I reckon I worked full time for about 3 months (bye bye to my degree)! Long time, but i'm somewhat a perfectionist, and still getting used to Gold.

was a lot of fun. I only wish i could have recorded a real choir, or maybe had the new Symphonic Choirs on tap...
