Cinematic writing

I love movies. I love the artistry that creates a scene, from sets and lighting to props, costume and camera work. I’m inspired by that visual storytelling, and it seeps into my writing like blood.

Below is an experiment for my next book, Ghost. I approached the introductory sequence as if it was a movie script, and tried to picture the scenes to a soundtrack I love. (Also below.) Hit play as you read for the full effect – I hope. I’d love to know your thoughts, and whether you’ve tried anything similar in your own writing.
