Scriptwriting

If this picture here was taken from a particular scene of a blockbuster movie, frozen, as the leading actor turns back, reaching out, hoping for his dear sweetheart to take his hand so he won't have to take that long journey back home alone defeated, gazing her deep as to say I need you and I can't do this without you, come with me..., in one slow continuous motion while big city lights light up the night from its otherwise cold stillness to help set the stage for this grand finale of fate; how would you write such drama into a script so that it is inspiring enough for a director to shoot a scene with at least the same dramatic intensity as the scriptwriter/author has envisioned? Scriptwriting/screenwriting is the art of doing just that, taking an original story and making it stronger visually for it to be shot into a movie/tv/whatever.

"I don't know"

That my readers, believe it or not -and I'm putting it here for record- is the title of my first song. Yes, I'm writing songs now, and when it's done and ready and I'm happy with it, I'll definitely share it here with you.

But in the meantime, I don't know... I just don't know.
