I am working on a trailer at the moment and I'm trying to put in a nice sound for a bright light/lens flare.
The best thing I can come up with is feedback, but it reminds me of something harsh. It seems to work, but I'm trying to find other options. I tried bowed cymbals and glass, etc, but those seem too harsh and unpleasant as well. I'm trying to put something subtle but noticeable and pleasant-sounding.
What have you used for a bright light/flash of light in trailers or any movie?
Or if you can point me to good examples of this in other trailers or movies, please do so!
Thanks in advance for your help.
