#4: JUNO

Here is the opportunity to score a sequence in a contemporary comedy/drama with an indie film vibe.

The deadline has passed.  View the submissions and discussion on Facebook.



This one was the trickiest so far. Kudos to those who tried.

Finding the right tone of a scene with stylized dialogue, two strong performances and a mixture of comedy and drama is no small order. Plus the music needs to sit well with the age of the characters.

The best approaches tended to go in a Jon Brion, quirky direction. The weakest were those that were almost apologetic in their existence. A few brave souls tried very unconventional approaches, but none of them really landed for me.
