Monsieur Papier – Score

I am starting work on an original score for a short animation Monsieur Papier; it’s about a French piece of paper.

Every time I tell someone about the premise for the animation they laugh which is promising.

I’ve got a very rough sketch that I’ve uploaded here for some ideas to work on for the animation as the main motif. There is a very detailed storyboard put together so now its time for the animator to start making rough parts for it at which point I can start trying to mould the music into it a bit better.

I’ll need to watch a lot of Tom and Jerry to get some inspiration for using musical devices to express character emotion which will be the next step for me. To this end, here is a video of a classic Tom and Jerry moment.
