Sounds of the real space in the films
When I try to imagine a film, I always “reject” the appearance of music. Instead, I rely more on various sounds of the real space, including the music which can be actually played in those spaces, eg. the background music of cafés, bars and so on. I don’t usually work with composters for most of my films.
Fukuoka doesn’t have a composer, either. I put some Hollywood music when shot the scenes in the cafe. The owner of the cafe is a cinephile. The use of such music fits his character. And it also solved the problem of not having enough budget to hire a composer. The song at the end of the film is a piece of famous Korean pop song in the 80s. It represents the collective memory of the two male protagonists.
I don’t have a specific plan yet about making a film about music. If there’s any chance, I would, of course, like to try. The premise should be music being the absolute main focus of the film, while the story and the visual being surbodinate.
