Today is the first official day of Script Frenzy, and although I haven’t written anything yet I’ve got the first scene (the cold open… that’s what those kids are calling it these days, right?) more or less mapped out in my head visually.
In addition, and this is an extremely vital part of my creative process and probably the same for many others, I’ve figured out what song should cue up after the action starts, to give just the right feel of “whoa shit things just got real son”. Spoiler alert: it’s the song I just uploaded here.
The combination of meandering banjo, sexy electric guitar, and just-a-titch creepy piano encapsulates everything I want the show to be. And the lyrics! The lyrics, in my understanding, seem to hint at a badass babe who won’t take shit from anyone, even if the overall intimation is also a bit of a “crazy eye” stereotype. I hope you can listen to this and envision the blasted, chaotic landscape of Hero City being traversed by some ladies with dirt on their faces and blood on their boots.
