2012 has been a hell of a year for film, but one of the most emotional theatrical experiences of the past 12 months has to be director Behn Zeitlin’s indie Beasts of the Southern Wild.  The majestic story soars on the heels of a powerhouse performance from 6-year-old Quvenzhané Wallis, but the film’s original score almost acts as its own character in the film.  Zeitlin composed the music alongside Dan Romer, and the resulting score is a beautifully layered, chill-inducing work that’s essential to the film’s success.

Beasts has been garnering its fair share of awards buzz this month, landing on the National Board of Review’s Top 10 films of the year list.  While it’s certainly a contender for a Best Picture nomination at the upcoming Oscars, the film might have a decent shot at winning the trophy for Best Original Score.  With that in mind, a video has landed online in which Zeitlin and Romer discuss and demonstrate how the film’s score was composed and recorded.  Hit the jump to watch.
