"Whispers of Lumina"

 

Brief

We set our Setting in a fictional fantasy game and now we challenge you to score the trailer for it.

"Lumina" our Wonderland was a vibrant and magical paradise, brimming with life, color, and joy. However, a malevolent force or dark deed cast a shadow over the land, draining it of its essence and plunging it into darkness. The enchanting beauty faded into grey desolation, the joyful sounds were silenced, and the inhabitants vanished without a trace. Once a thriving and wondrous realm, Wonderland is now an empty and haunted shadow of its former self, its magic and life stripped away by a sinister power.

Create a classic fantasy soundtracks that evoke both wonder and a sense of foreboding. The music should mirror the journey of Wonderland from a place of enchantment to one of desolation, effectively telling the story through its transitions.

Please make sure your YouTube link is official and not set to private, as we cannot review private links. Thank you!
