Firefly [trailer]

Published on 28th June 2015 Category: trailer Tags: firefly, trailer, short, cometrage

Firefly is my first, official short movie. For this personal jewel I had the privilege to work with two most respected professionals and dearest of friends. Award winning Actress Stephanie Capetanides and Actor and respected Director Alexander –Sasha– Troshin.
Firefly visited many National and International festivals. It was a point of interest at the 36th Drama Short Film Festival in 2015 since it was a zero budget project made by 3 people driven by their love for cinema. The invaluable help from my father Nickolaos Soumelidis and a very dear friend and respected music composer from the US Jan Broberg Carter made this project real.
It was on May 2016 at the London-Greek Film Festival when Firefly competed many short and feature movies and Stephanie Capetanides won the Odysseus Award for Best Female Actor.
I would like so much to share this movie with you but until it completes its festival cycle I can only share this trailer with you. Stay tuned and as soon as the movie will be released for public viewing you will be the first ones who will watch it!

The Outpost

Published on 10th May 2013 Category: fan made videos Tags: farcry, gramers

One of the most exciting projects I will never forget was a personal metaphor of the well-known Ubisoft’s game Farcry that was created with my good friends the GRamers!!
Please visit their channel. They make interesting (and very funny) reviews of the most current PC-Games, they give valuable suggestions and make propositions for the best PC-configurations for your budged and many more.
Also do not forget to watch the very funny making-of this movie! It is a blessing living near people full of energy, creativity and madness. I hope our roads will cross again for more projects such as this one.

RedStar

Published on 25th August 2012 Category: personal project Tags: cometrage, action, thriller

RedStar is my first ever movie.
A short action film featuring the lovely, multi-awarded actress and model, Stephanie Capetanides.
Through her long career as an actress none of the directors saw her as an action character. A small instinctive voice whispered to me to give it a try.. and I am glad I listened! She became one with the featured character in such a manner that her transformation made it difficult for me to recognize her while I was editing.
What a great talent!
The film was shot in the island of Evoia during a very hot summer. A summer where I learned that at in the most relaxed state of mind some really good ideas can come out rushing, wanting to be realized as soon as humanly possible.
So I grabbed my camera (and Stephanie while she was sunbathing) and shot this little jewel.
Since then, everyone that watched this movie was asking me the same question:
“And then?.. what happens next?”.
That question annoyed me like a mosquito on a summer midday siesta.
It took me 4 years to take the big decision and start developing a feature project based on this little.. “experiment”.
Enjoy!

The concept of an infinite loop always intrigued me. Just imagine experiencing something again and again..
Constant repetition.. without evolving…
…brings chills on my spine.

Firefly

Released on June 1st Category: soundtrack Tags: music, ost, sountrack, firefly

This is the official OST of my short action/drama film Firefly.
Moody.. melancholic.. like the winter's cloudy sky that brings unsettling news.
Alexander –Sasha– Troshin’s voice shares the hero’s feelings for losing his old friends at the field of the battle. An old Russian memorial melody for the WW2 soldiers.. performed admirably by the mellow voice of the Artist.
The second track is an ascending moment.. with an uncertain feeling.
What do we see from the peak of the ascension?..
is it a hopeful dawn?...
or an chilling dusk?....

Enjoy.

Hero's Path

Released on June 1st Category: soundtrack Tags: music, ost, sountrack, firefly

Hero’s Path is a concept score I was asked to compose for a feature film about an ancient Greek hero venturing forth the risky path of life because he defied the god Apollo..
Music is the sound of life.. the sound of Nature.
Ancient Greeks introduced Music through complex mathematical equations and melodic structures based on Phi ratio. Most of these marvels have been preserved in Byzantine Orthodox chants.
Having carefully studied many of the Byzantine chants I became addicted to this complex but totally logical and comprehensive musical character.
Hence the following track engulfs different ideas and phrases through the characteristics of the ancient Greek era. Using one of the oldest Greek musical instruments (the Lyra) I tried to give to this epic story an aristocratic quality and in the same time holding a strong character. In this way the melodic path could guide us to the crescendo at the end witch is the summoning of the god Apollo!..

Enjoy.

fanariotes

Fanariotes

Released on June 1st Category: soundtrack Tags: music, ost, sountrack, fanariotes

Fanariotes is a documentary by the famous Greek Director Panos Aggelopoulos.
It is about a cast of very influencing Greek people that resided in Western Turkey and came back to Greece after the Ottoman Empire. The documentary narrates their story from 16th to 19th century.
The mood of the chronicle is adventurous hence the music had to follow faithfully but in a subtle fashion since their ventures were in the realms of diplomacy and influence rather than in a battlefield.
The music rhythms and sound textures had to be consistent to the 16th century Ottoman Era but it had to keep the fine balance between the deep Asian instruments and Western – Post Byzantium influences.
The main vocals were sung by the voice of my favorite actress Stephanie Capetanides.

spirulina

Spirulina

Released on June 1st Category: soundtrack Tags: music, ost, sountrack, spirulina

Spirulina - The wonderous Green Algae. A very interesting documentary by Vangelis Tremopoulos that describes thoroughly this wonderous micro organism. How it contributes to natures life cycle and its importance and how it can contribute to our health - mental and even social balance.
The music I had to compose for this project was trivial.
How can someone describe a microorganism’s life?
But then.. Isn't everything a description of life?…and what IS everything?.....
Nature!!…
So “how do I describe Nature?” was actually the real question.
Loving? Caring? Ruthless?.....
Watching the documentary over and over again I was able to focus to this little Nature’s manifestation.
After realizing what this algae does…. I straight sat to compose the following tracks!!
From this amazing experience, Galandriel’s words became even more obvious and most profound..
"Even the smallest creatures can change the course of the Universe".

Raindrops

Published on 25th September Category: show reel Tags: reel, showreel, elfspell, soumelidis

Raindrops is a melody I composed practicing my virtual instruments. I was trying to listen to the instrument’s sounds and textures as well as the harmonics compared to a real symphonic structure.
The result was quite amazing I felt the urge to share it with you!...

The Greek

The Greek

Published on January 5th 2016 Category: colaboration

Avery interesting call I had on January the 5th. A good friend of mine and coleague called me from Los Angeles California to talk about a unique athlete. A champion of boxing with ONE ARM!!
With the collaboration of The Greek Reporter he was going to work as an editor for a documentary about this amazing dude Vangelis that goes with the alias "The Greek". He then asked me if I was interested composing the music for this project. My responce was imediate and by the end of the week I had the teaser ready.
Now we are on the process getting the project funded so I could have the composition performed by real musicians for finilizing. Since this project has a unique value I believe the funding-quota will be reached soon.
Keep up for more coming news about that incredible project.
