I wanted to give you guys a preview of what our musician, Christopher, has been working on. I met Christ online on the StudentFilmmakers.com website. I was blown away by his work and contacted him. After looking through our website, hearing about the project, and getting a copy of the script, Chirs composed this short clip for us. I think it's amazing!! Soundtrack work is usually tailored to the final film which in our case hasn't been filmed yet! But it's great to have Chris on the team and already playing with different themes...Chris, you're AMAZING!! To listen to the music, hit the Play icon on the mini player to your left...My apologies if you have problems..still a little new to the Flash MX 2004 Suite...
