Cue of the Week: “Craving Greatness (Opening Sequence)”
This weeks’s selection is a two-part cue that opens Stephanie Keefer’s film about the joys and struggles of the creative process. (I featured the closing cue in a prior week’s post.)
This cue introduces the film’s main theme, meant to evoke the quiet satisfaction that creativity can bring. Following that is a jaunty section for the film’s depiction of some of the amusing realities of a writer’s life: disorganization, scatter-brainedness, and the occasional fit of expletives. To match the film’s intimate perspective, I stick to piano throughout the score.
