Sometimes when I think about the story I want to tell I think about something similar to the video below.
It is the opening montage to the second season of The Sopranos. What you see are a series of clips set to It Was a Very Good Year as performed by Frank Sinatra.
To be clear the story isn’t necessarily set back East nor does it really have any mob or Italian connection, but what it does have is depth. There are multiple layers and complex characters and I see a relationship between what I I want to write and the video.
People fascinate me. Really, I have learned that the most ridiculous television shows can be outdone by the things that real people do.
We like to think we act based upon logic and reason yet many of our decisions are based upon emotion or arbitrary choices that aren’t based upon anything of substance.
Many of us adopt the same religion or politics because that is what our parents were/did. It is not necessarily a bad thing but it does help illustrate how sometimes we don’t really choose to do or be, we just are because they (parents ) were.
More to come about this at a later date.
