Challenge – Create a Storm
Okay. Here’s your challenge for this chapter. One scene, one cue, a lot to go within. The scene is simple. It’s night on the farm, a storm roles in.
The elements …
– Night Ambience
– Distant Cars
– A dog barking
– Distant thunder
– Present and loud thunder
The scene should start with a peaceful night ambience, move into the storm, then slowly fade out. There’s not a right or wrong way to do this, but a few things to think about.
– Do we first hear thunder when the storm starts? Or do we hear it from the beginning. And if we hear it from the beginning, what changes?
– How do the cars change when it starts raining?
– What does the dog do when it rains?
– What do the cicadas do when it rains?
