Top LA Music Production Company The Hit House is Featured in December on Newly Launched WD Ventito Creative Community Website
The Hit House is being profiled via a multi-part video series, “Once Upon a ¾ Time: One Film, Five Scores," and a Series of Articles by EP Sally House
Top music production company The Hit House has partnered with WD Ventito, the hard drive manufacturer's recently launched branded magazine, to create a behind-the-scenes series of short films showing the power of music to express emotion. Sally House, Executive Producer at The Hit House, made the announcement.
Launched in May 2014, and powered by WD, one of the largest technology companiesin the world, the WD Ventito website arms its visitors for success through creative inspiration, trends, tips, tricks and insights from visionaries, inventors, entrepreneurs and artists from around the world. The site can be located here: http://www.wdventito.com
As part of the digital collaboration, The Hit House is being profiled this month (December) via a multi-part video series, entitled "Once Upon a 3/4 Time: One Film, Five Scores" on the WD Ventito site. This web series, comprised of six, 90-second long videos along with accompanying soundtracks, explores the process of creating mood and emotion through music, as Hit House composers and musicians are seen as they develop the soundtrack for a simple short film.
The assignment for The Hit House with this web series was to convey how to tell a story, how to guide a story, and how to manipulate the emotions of the viewer. Says Sally House, "Music can make you laugh. Music can make you cry. Music can make you terrified." Adds Hit House Composer Scott Miller, pictured above, "Music is just emotion. Every single chord rings a different way - every chord depicts a different color. The combinations just make you feel differently. Through this sound for picture, a composer can navigate people through how they should feel about things - a composer can manipulate people quite easily."
The web series, taking a twist on "Groundhog Day," shows the Hit House team as they produce five different styles of music to aurally elicit five different emotions generated by the same short film - romantic, horror, comedy, melancholy and inspirational.
