Apocalypto waterfall scene rescore

Done as part of my coursework at DKIT this term. For my Music in Film class, I had to pick a film scene and rescore it with different music. Because I LOVE Apocalypto and this scene in particular, I picked that. The lack of music here was ideal for putting music to it and after listening to a few different soundtracks on my iPod while watching it, I landed on the Game of Thrones soundtrack by Ramin Djawadi. I used 3 different tracks as leitmotifs here; “The Assassin’s Dagger” as Jaguar Paw’s fear-driven theme, “North of the Wall” as the theme of the chase and urge to run and “Three Blasts” as Zero Wolf’s rage driven theme.

Anyway, if you haven’t seen the film, you owe it to yourself to watch it. It’s fantastic. And buy the GoT soundtracks while you’re at it!


  1. I love the fact that the smart ass schemer gets pushed forward first .. Savages are but honorable unlike thieves and schemers. 🍷🕶

  2. 3:28 – When keeping it real goes wrong

  3. I can’t believe they still haven’t made a sequel –_

  4. When you have individuals like these characters here risking their lives jumping over waterfalls to catch you, it's pretty serious. They want your ass really bad!!!.

  5. Protagonist jumps: bravery , heroic
    All jumped: madness

  6. What a movie 🎥 👏 👌

  7. Фильм реально крутой

  13. Some people live for vengeance. Resurrected to corruption and not to life everlasting.

  14. One of my fav movies of all time. I used to run like crazy on treadmill while watching this! LoL!


  16. Watched it for more than 100 times and still got the same feeling as 1st. It makes Jaguar maya warriors just like my imagination !

  17. One of my favorite director and movie

  18. One of the greatest movie of all time, Mel Gibson is a gifted madmen. And this is probably what the Native American phenotype is more closer looking to, I've seen a girl looking like she just stepped out of Germany claim she's Native American from a long lost Cherokee Princess bloodline lol.

  19. For all his bonkers Catholic/alcoholic nonsense, Mel Gibson is one hell of a director. Underused and underestimated.

  20. That Warrior bloodline runs deep

  21. Wow such a quiet waterfall lets us hear what Jaguar Paw said.

  22. Jaguar Paws was a total badass!

  23. One of the best ever I think.

  24. Apacalypto did show up until the very end of the movie.(white man) Great movie. Mel Gibson is pure genius.

  25. Zero Wolf (Roul Max Trujillo) torrated zero nonsense……!.
    My favorite movie of all time….!
