Score for Toniko Pantoja's animated film "Crayon Dragon" which will be out in a few weeks. Was really a lot fun scoring this as the film downright demanded a narrative score. This is an extended version of the score as I wanted the player performances to be heard a little better. Everything after 3 minutes is basically an alternative mix of the middle part.

Big thanks to Kristin Naigus [link] and Taryn J. Harbridge [link] for making the fantastic live recordings! The live Violin, Tin and Low Whistle contributed a lot to this score.

Here's the film -> [link]

This is one of my favorite short films I have ever seen, and I've been searching for the music for some time now!  Of course, it turns out Denny Schneidemesser created it!  I love your music, it's so beautiful <3

This score helped tell the story of the narrative so well. I always cry at the end, and without this wonderful score to make the story be so full of life I don't think I would even bat an eye lash. You have a wonderful gift.

Thank you so much for putting this up. I absolutely adore this song and I was looking all over for it. Love the short film too; I'm hoping to go into an Animation major, and you did a great job composing for Pantoja's short film.

Thanks again, I really appreciate this!

The score sounds almost identical to the filmscore from "How to Train your Dragon". Maybe it´s because of the celtic feel into it.
Overall though, that´s just nitpicking. This song is remarkable, especially in combination with the animation-short. It has a merorable beat into it and it sounds wonderful.

Yes, overall we we're looking for something with a celtic touch which required a lot of ornamentation in the violin and whistle parts. The final video is online now. :)
