For me every scene deserves a particular song, a particular style of song of music. I need the emotion. For instance for the ending of the screenplay I have decided to play some Bonnie Tyler while writing the ending. The song HOLDING OUT FOR A HERO is one of the songs in the ending playlist. It's a song that is perfect for an ending of a film where the hero is set out beyond all obstacles and rescues the day sacrificing the hero's self in the process. I don't get that from every word in the song, but from the feel of the whole song itself.
Right now I am writing the middle of the screenplay and that is usually a crucial point in adding obstacles infront of the hero. I have been here for a while now, and I decided that the whole movie cannot be depressing even though I would love for it to be depressing. Uplifting, dark, with a certain minutes of brightness. The story is completely dark, it has very little sunshine, the characters are all flawed, they all have nothing left in their life. If I had continued to write it without any slightest bit of happiness then all that whom had watched it would have been consumed in hate and anger and into a dark hole of depression.
I remember when I was writing ALONE AT THE VERY END OF THE WORLD, I was different. Everything about me was different, it was like I placed myself in the story when I wrote it and I felt everything that went on which is why the book is not widely loved. I wrote it for me.
