Short video clips with original music by Richard White

These clips came from the web sites of Sibelius Music Notation Software, the British Film Institute and the Internet Archive.
The clips from Sibelius were provided as examples for Sibelius users to try their hand at Sibelius' video scoring capabilities.
They were all scored in Sibelius, using the sounds of the Garritan Personal Orchestra and Sibelius Sound Essentials.
The end credits and final mixing were done in iMovie. Since these examples are my first foray into writing soundtracks,
I consider them exercises in getting my feet wet in the process. Enjoy!
