Screenplay Writing – The Use Of Music

Posted in Editorial, Entertainment, Screenplay, Videos, Writing with tags , , on February 25, 2012 by darkjade68

It’s funny, I was going through some Old Writing Files I have on this Computer, that I had transferred from one of my Older Computers… The Files were Created Back When I was Focusing on Screenplay Writing back between 2003 and 2006.

I had Completed One Screenplay, Completely Edited it, and it was basically Ready To Go… However, I was always Creating New Beginnings of Screenplays, which often never made it very far… But I found that it was Important just to be Writing as Much as Possible, even if it wasn’t very good, and even if you never touched it again, lol

Today I came across such an Experimental Writing, which is Completely Not Formatted, Edited or anything more than a “Right Out of My Head”, and “On To Paper” kind of thing.

But one thing I did do, which if I recall I often did whilst Writing Potential Screenplays, was “Write Down Music” that might be played in the Scene…

Now Reading This, it seems almost more like a “Written for T.V. Movie”, lol… Which is ok, and some of the Music I chose along the way I know, and already liked… And some, frankly, I have no idea where I came up with it… Maybe I was listening to some sort of Online Radio Station or something, Though This Particular Piece looks to have been Written Back in 2005, so I’m not sure if I was aware of any Online Radio Stations at that time, as I Often Listen to “Pandora” these days, or Put My “ITunes” On Random.

Anyway, I thought it might be kind of fun to Share This Piece with you, not so much for the Writing, as like I say, it looks to have been something that popped in my head, so I Wrote it down… But more so to show you how Music can Play a Part in Writing a Screenplay, just like it plays a Major Part in The Actual Film itself.

Enjoy, I hope you get something out of this, lol

TEARS FOR FEARS

(This Was a Working Title only)

A Screenplay

by

 James Mahoney

 (2005)

BLACK SCREEN

 

(Robert Palmer: Simply Irresistible) – Film Starts with a Black Screen, and This Song Playing

(Song Continues in the Background)

PETER (V.O) – “So… Tell me again what the stories about…”

 

FADE IN

 

EXT. MOUNTAINS NEAR BIG BEAR, CALIFORNIA – PETER’S TRUCK

 

JOHN (V.O.) – “Well… I haven’t gotten it exactly figured out quite yet…”

 

INT. PETER’S TRUCK

 

In the passenger seat JOHN, a thirty something year old male, and driving, PETER, his younger brother, make their way into the mountains of Big Bear California.

 

JOHN – “But I know that part of it will include this guy’s wife cheating and leaving him…”

 

 

PETER – “Wow…”

 

(Half Pause)

 

PETER – “That’s depressing man…”

 

(Half pause)

 

JOHN – “Thanks…”

 

PETER – “What happened to those types of stories you used to write when we we’re kids…”

 

(Half pause)

 

JOHN – “Like…”

 

PETER – “Oh… I Don’t know… Like the one where the kid hides away in the attic of his school…”

 

(Half pause)

 

PETER – “And reads that magical book that allows him to see into that magical world…”

 

(Pause)

 

JOHN – “Big dragon dog…”

 

PETER – “Yeah! That’s the one…”

 

(Half pause)

 

PETER – “And the kid’s like tucked up in that attic with a little paper bag lunch… And when the characters in the book stop to eat… Like… So does he…”

 

“And it’s like raining outside…”

 

(Half pause)

 

JOHN – “The Never Ending Story…”

 

PETER – “Yeah!! That’s the one… That was great!”

 

(Quarter pause)

 

JOHN – “That was a movie Peter…”

 

(Pause)

 

PETER – “Oh…”

That’s Enough, as I don’t like Posts To Get Too Long, but I’ll Do Part II of this Soon…

Until then, I leave you with a Couple More Robert Palmers Vids

This is Actually A Great Song

8 Mirrors

Standing in the Center…

Out of My Control

Your Eyes Blue…

Dark…

Green…

And Gold

If I tell you I’m Sorry…

Will you let me go

If I told you I Loved you…

Would you Already Know

I’ve Love To give…

But You Don’t Want it… No

I Step Away… You Knock me down

Run For The Light…

Your Touch Ignites

A Flame Inside…

I Can’t Control

Say You Don’t Want Me…

And So I’m Alone

I Rip My Heart Out…

You Turn To Ice

I Fall To My Knees…

A Fools Device

Eyes Bleeding…

I Should Have Known

Wound’s Deep…

Love Sets Its Tone

Listen… At 4:25 On The Video, Read The Poem Again
