This week I was on vacation at the beach, so I didn’t quite reach my hourly goal. I mainly focused on the cue “Burning Homestead,” in which Luke sees his house burned down. This cue took quite a bit of time because it has three very distinct parts
I still haven’t decided just how close I want my opening to be to his. If I write something similar, it will certainly draw people in and make theme feel comfortable, but it won’t seem 100% unique. However, if I write my music in an entirely different fashion from his, then I feel like that will cause some people to dislike my music from the moment it begins. Once the movie itself is underway, I can take more chances, but the opening crawl (in my opinion) needs to be the perfect balance between my own writing and Williams’s legendary work.
