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)
- bridge (story going on a tangent)
- 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 ?
