This was one of my Sound Design projects while I was studying at Musitechnic. I knew I had to pick this video from the first time I saw it. It reminds me of one of my favorite comic strips: Calvin & Hobbes.
I had a lot of fun doing all the noises and sound effects; and of course, I enjoyed composing the music as well. It still is one of my favorites!
“Enemy of Rome” is a Montreal-based web series project aiming to produce a first season of 15 drama episodes set in the ancient roman empire.
As a big fan of epic and emotional music, I was so excited by the challenge of creating a musical identity for a whole series. Finally, I didn’t get to use some of the music I had composed in the screen test episode, but I will be able to do it when the series will be produced.

This is the first excerpt from the original soundtrack of the upcoming series “Enemy of Rome”.
… And there will be more music soon for the upcoming episodes (production starting beginning 2018).
Here I did the opposite: instead of composing music for a video, I first composed the song and then I made the videoclip to illustrate the ideas and images I had in my head when I was composing the song.
I loved the movie “The Crow” since the first time I saw it. Of course, there’s the action and its gothic ambiance; but above all, there’s the story of Eric and Shelly, which has a stronger and deeper meaning when you know the story of James O’Barr, the creator of the Comic book that inspired the movie.
Here I worked on both aspects of the video almost simultaneously: I composed the music having in mind some scenes of the movie, and then I edited the different scenes to match the music I had just composed.
I really like the ambiance of the night – so quiet and peaceful – and I always wanted to make a videoclip inspired by it, using timelapse footage.
So when the time came to do it, I realized that there was one of my songs that had been gathering dust for years that was just perfect for that project. Actually, the song didn’t even had a name but it really represented the magic that happens at the very moment of the break of the dawn!
