Wanting to include specific song/music in script-how to write in

If I have a scene that I want to write that is basically an over the top dramatic no holds barred scene with something like 'O Fortuna' from Carmina Burana playing in the background as an indicator as just how overly dramatic the scene is, how would I go about writing that into the the scene?

Laura Scheiner

Dan there is a difference between an opinion and a fact. Mike gave his opinion about how to do it, which was different than my example. I do not challenge that or say it is wrong. When I mentioned tha...

I kind of thought agreeing with the poster who praised you would be the same. Sorry you didn't take it that way.

Martina Cook

I might be wrong, but O Fortuna (from the opera Carmina Burana) was written by Carl Orff, who died in 1982. Copyright on his work should last 70 years after his death, which means whoever produces you...

Krista, just put it in your spec, you'll be fine. Perhaps use "something like, O Fortuna." You are creating/hinting at a specific tone. What could be, not what should. If/when this script goes into de...

I'm reluctant to take advice from an "expert" with a whopping five writing credits, the most recent of which was in 1993. Pass.

Uncle Phil

Robert Franklin: I've only watched one of his tapes and it didn't have much impact on me either way. Without offering me an it's all good, generic answer, what do you like about McKee? How has he improved your screenwriting?

Uncle Phil

I just watched the first ten minutes of this tape and it was a great philosophy lesson that echoes many of my own sentiments. I listen to the rest when I have time to see if there's any revelations.

Dan MaxXx

I subscribe to McKee's daily tweets . They are good reminders, checklist. But I wouldn't pay for a McKee seminar. it's still you and a blank page.

Robert Franklin

I listen to a writer and share with others in hopes they too will find some nuggets. Maybe the nuggets are just reminding us of what we know. Maybe it's a search for more of the writers info on the web. I guess it is different for everyone.

Investors

Hi! I just joined Stage 32, I am in the final stages of completing my feature with my production company, I have been working in the industry for about 10 Years. I was curious to see if anyone had advice on getting investors to back your project?

Jan, is this fiction or non-fiction? Have you tried to find a literary agent for your book?

Rutger Oosterhoff

A really good pitch! Without having read the book it sounds like a psychothriller.
Qua feel (only qua feel) it somehow reminds me of "The Day of the Jackal".

Good luck! Rutger

Jan Ziemecki Sr.

It's fiction. Based on actual facts. I would love some introductions to literary agents. I'm already outlining the second and third books in this trilogy.
