Choose a movie you know well (or not) and turn it into a song, with or without lyrics.

You could do this any way you want.

If you're struggling to get started, here are a few questions that may help.

? What kind of music do you associate with this movie? Do you want to go down that road or explore something completely unexpected?

? Is there a strong character or relationship that is at the center of the movie? Should you write about that?

? Does the movie feature striking landscapes that inspire music?

? Is there a scene that every one remembers? Is it controversial?

? Can you translate the plot into a music arrangement?

That last one is a tricky one, let me give you an example:

  • long intro (a little slow to get started)
  • chorus (exciting event)
  • verse (plot development)
  • chorus
  • bridge (story going on a tangent)
  • chorus
  • verse (wrapping up the story)
  • outro (leaving room for a second installment in a potential trilogy)

Don't overthink this.

Give it a go and see where it takes you ?
