I especially like the characters in this story, and a lot of the ways that they interact with each other is how the story progresses. The characters definitely add to the atmosphere: they seem to ‘push’ it along and we really get to see the extremities that they go to. Another thing that progresses the story along is the radio and reporter voice-overs. This element makes the script set in a post-modern world where things that are happening could easily be happening in actual reality, and it also saves the characters from having to introduce plot exposition (since the story is introduced where the characters are well aware of the set up), which usually ends up being corny anyway. I think that Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata really adds to the slow, stylish mood. The motif that surrounds the song really isn’t introduced until towards the end, in which a plethora of different attributes are introduced also. This is very much a script meant for the screen and that’s the way I wrote it. All of the characters portrayed have a face; a style of speaking; different character traits.
