The visual portion of this video is a 30 second commercial for season’s tickets to the BC Lions. We were each given a silent copy of this commercial with instructions to produce our own original score for it. We were meant to focus on establishing a mood that fit the shots, and we also needed to record a classmate’s voice and use it in the commercial somehow. Most people did some cool, driving music that gave the impression of intensity and energy, but I tried to do one of my favourite things, which is to interpret things in a different way than they were intended to be interpreted. Hopefully it worked out! I’ve included a transcript, since the voice isn’t all that clear in places.
On January 30th, 2010, 46 of the BC Lions football team were brutally attacked by a pack of wolves. This is their story.
Efforts to hold the wolves back with a football failed.
(Man screams.) They thought they would be safe at Row N, Seat 11, but the attack continued.
