Fifty percent of the film’s success is the music. Tomek Bagiński invited two composers who co-operated with him on “The witcher”. The pieces created by Adam Skorupa and Paweł Błaszczak were to be played by the symphonic orchestra.
We were writing the music together with Adam Skorupa. Adam created the part with a sad atmosphere. Tomek wanted to distinguish the first part from the second so that it would not reveal what would happen in the next one. I wrote the main theme, as well as the beginning and the illustration of Francis’s ecstasy – tells Paweł Błaszczak.
We did this trick on purpose to achieve the difference in climate. Two composers, two different styles and all the bigger disproportion with what happens at the beginning of the film and at the end – adds Adama Skorupa.
Although the final effect was to be reached using live instruments, the process of making music was “traditional” – using computers and electronic instruments. Eventually, the music was recorded using the orchestra conducted by a famous Polish pianist, conductor and arranger, Krzysztof Herdzin. The musician was the orchestrator of the music by Jan A.P. Kaczmarek, awarded by an Oscar.
Francis is an inventor. His invention is supposed to change the world. He forgot about one thing: dreams always cost too much. He is focused only on himself and his work and realizes the gravity of the situation only when it is too late.
