In story-telling mode again as I start imagining a new film (GET BETTER). It’s interesting how these things develop…how they actually do work themselves out as opposed to how I initially intend them to.
I do start with the end in mind…usually the last shot or sequence of shots. A picture in my mind. Music helps. I listen to music quite a bit, and there are times when I am driving and listening to music…and scenes just start playing in my head. Though sometimes its just tone…the feel of a scene that unfolds as a song plays.
I am pretty clueless when it comes to classical music, but recently Beethoven’s “Piano Sonata No. 13 in E Flat, Op. 27 No. 1: 3” captures the final scene in GET BETTER for me. I’m listening to it as I write this, and watching the last scene of the film in my head.
