  • Listen to My Original Score for “Silas”

    Feature Article, Original MusicComments Off on Listen to My Original Score for “Silas”

    On June 20, 2016 • By

    A few weeks ago, a film called Silas came out online. The film was written/directed by Bralyn Stokes – and I happened to do the original score for it! Well, if you watched the movie and are interested in listening to the score on its own – here you go!

    Up above is the isolated original score for the film. Turn your speakers way up, turn off the lights, light some incense and just let the sounds wash over your soul. At least, that’s how I imagine everyone will listen to it. Enjoy! And as always, let me know what you think! Find me on Twitter (username = ryanestabrooks) or message me on Facebook!

  • “Stories of Enchantment” – NEW PROMO FILM!

    Feature Article, Original Film, Original MusicComments Off on “Stories of Enchantment” – NEW PROMO FILM!

    On June 17, 2016 • By

     

    Hey everyone! I’m excited to share this new promo film I directed for a book called Stories of Enchantment. The book features sonnets inspired from various fairy tales, written by Jessa R. Sexton. In this film, Jessa stars and narrates one of her sonnets as we bring it to life on the screen.

    This film was a unique challenge because I haven’t shot a sort of mysterious piece like this before. I have also been experimenting A LOT more with my color, which led to giving this piece a bit of an otherworldly palette composed of blues, greens, and orangish-reds. I would also like to mention that I did the music for this film as well!

    I’m really proud of how this came out and I believe it truly captures more of my directorial style. Jessa essentially gave me free reign over how to interpret her sonnet and I’m really happy it came out well. So watch it above and enjoy!

    Silas teaser poster premiere

    As some of you may recall, a film called Silas had it’s public premiere a few months ago. Now, it is finally coming online! Starting this Wednesday, May 25th, you will be able to watch Silas for free on Vimeo! I will post a link on this website, Twitter and Facebook but for now, you can bookmark https://vimeo.com/bralynstokes (that’s the Vimeo channel of the writer/director/star).

    The reason you should watch Silas (besides it being a great story) is because I did the original score for it! It was the biggest film I’ve done original music so far and a lot of work went into making it as perfect as can be. Lots of different moods and textures that I had never done before. I’m really glad that it’s getting out to the masses worldwide and I can’t wait to hear what people think. I hope that when you watch it, you get to see it on the biggest screen you have…and make sure you have a good set of speakers. And obviously, crank them up!

    To get you excited, check out the trailer below:

  • FREE Tickets Are Available for ‘Silas’ – a Film I Did the Original Score For

    Events, Original MusicComments Off on FREE Tickets Are Available for ‘Silas’ – a Film I Did the Original Score For

    Hey everyone!

    I’m really stoked to announce that Silas is FINALLY coming to the big screen! Silas is a dramatic film that I started working on a little over a year ago. In the late summer/early fall of 2014, I was asked to help on set and also was tasked with creating an original score. This film clocks in at over 45 minutes – it was definitely the most music I have composed for a single project. I spent months working on this score with input from the director, Bralyn Stokes. When I finished, I had created my favorite music that I have ever done.

    Now, it will be shown to the public for the first time and I can’t wait for people to see this. There will be a one-time screening on Saturday, April 9th in Nashville, Tennessee at the Watkins Film School. The best part is that tickets are FREE! All you have to do is go to this link and reserve your tickets:

    https://www.eventbrite.com/e/silas-film-premiere-tickets-24044997234

    So if you live in the Nashville area or feel like traveling to see a wonderful film, get your tickets NOW before they run out! I want a packed house to take in this wonderful story (and music!).

    And feel free to check out the trailer at the top of this page!
