I have mentioned before I often use YouTube to provide background music or ambiance. Music has always been important to my writing sessions, but the music plus ambiance has become more important this summer. I love it and end up writing thousands of words before I even realize it.
But today I accidentally stumbled across a scene from the 1986 sci-fi classic, Aliens. Sure, I have seen it a hundred times. However, I hadn't seen the movie in years. I clicked on this clip to hear the music, and I was captivated by the scene.
Simplicity. Powerful storytelling. The amount of information the viewer experiences. Wow. It's also just a very cool scene.
