Creation of an original soundtrack.

For the last 10 months, Dorian Sabae has been composing, performing and arranging a new and original soundtrack for The Flight of the Arrowhead. We know Dorian from his award winning work on the music score for Fernium 8. This year he was joined by Felipe Dos Santos, who is composing additional tracks for the score. The director of the film Joao Tarouco said, "Dorian is unbelievably talented. His music gives another dimension to the story, unifying the mood and theme. It adds an extra level of drama, acting like a character within the story itself. It is almost as if we struck the lottery a second time with the addition of Felipe to the soundtrack team."

Here are links to two of the tracks from the film:

The sequel to "The Wraith."

In Spring 2008, the students of East Side High School's New Media Studies program created a film designed to test the limits of their abilities in creating special effects. The seven minute film titled The Wraith, directed by Joao Tarouco and Sergio Gonzalez, featured a young prince accompanied by two fairies running from a menacing undead creature which ended in a cliffhanger. The film won Best Fiction in the 2008 Newark Public Schools Student Film Festival. Ever since its release, the film's audience continually asked: "What happens next?" The Flight of The Arrowhead endeavors to answer that question.

Watch The Wraith here.
