My last main source of inspiration comes from music. I always find working in silence can be a bigger distraction than having something going on in the background. When I get an idea, particularly one I feel strongly about, I try to find music to suit each scene within the film to match the mood I am trying to capture. Music always plays a large role in my films, it acts as a main character for me and I feel without it my films would not be complete. The most recent soundtrack I fell in love with was Jóhann Jóhannsson’s moving compositions in ‘Arrival’. I have this soundtrack on a loop and it always without fail sparks a new idea that I immediately write down in one of my many sketchbooks. My advice when it comes to creating anything new, listen to something that you love, and allow everything else to be blocked out. Let the music help the mood of the piece you are trying to create, tune in to it and listen.
