I'm working on a student film where there is a CU scene of a genius' face while he is brainstorming a big idea. The director wants no speech involved (ie. it's not what he is thinking but rather what him thinking might sound like.)
The director wants it to sound pleasant and happy (like snow white in the forrest with animals or something similar) so that's taken out a lot of the sounds I might have tried first ie. calculation sounds, hard drives, calculators etc.)
Having a lot of trouble coming up with something that works that still sounds like some sort of internal thought process is happening.
Any ideas? How would you tackle this? Cheers.
