We have had such a blast talking about sound and music and walking you through all you can do with Epidemic Sound these past few weeks. We announced the finalists to our "At the End of the Tunnel" Short Contest this week, so if you missed those amazing short films, don't forget to check them out and get inspired!

Now, we are proud to present the winner of the "At the End of the Tunnel" Short Contest. The winner is...

"Amelie at Home" by attilaishere

Watch this incredible short below!

The film was shot on the Blackmagic Pocket 6K Pro on Carl Zeiss Jena 35mm F2.4, 80mm, F1.8, Canon 17-55 F2.8 lenses. It was edited and color graded in DaVinci Resolve.

The music featured in the short is Luella Gren, "After the Freak Show" from Epidemic Sound.

The team at Epidemic Sound thought the filmmakers did a great job of considering the story, and how they could use different sound effects to create a specific feeling and bring the world to life. They were impressed by how the filmmakers used the music and sound effects in a very smart and tasteful way.

"Soon we do not have to send paper airplanes to each other, we can see the end of the tunnel!"


Are you as impressed as we are? You can easily take advantage of the extensive libraries at Epidemic Sound. Check out your options!

Congratulations to 2nd and 3rd Place Winners
