Things to consider

  • Repeating themes

  • Repeating visuals

  • There should be a connection (ex. lighting -> volcano)

  • Sparsity, Crescendo

  • The music doesn't have negative space

Examples

Feedback

  • Go big + bold

  • Find a space of breath - maybe during the life phase

  • Increase or lower volume at specific points

  • Could add pauses to eh music and have some moments of silence with just ambience

  • Use graphic matches in transitioning to avoid documentary looks

  • Serene horror
