I'm a very huge fan of this comic, and two years ago or so I started to have this daydream about making traditionally animated film adaptations, covering one volume each. There should be several studios working at the same time in different ones because there are a lot of volumes and we keep getting more and more, and all that stuff that really doesn't matter very much because it's only daydreaming. There could be some original music for the films, but I'd really like to put known songs from other movies and from bands, in a similar fashion to Tarantino. The thing is, the first song I came up with was Ennio Morricone's "The Ecstasy of Gold," from The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. And now I'm gonna explain how it would fit in one scene, pannel by pannel:
Volume 8, after the Governor's flashback, the Woodbury soldiers start shooting. I think then Axel gets one bullet in his arm and everyone throws themselves on the floor. Everyone except for Andrea, who runs straight to the watch tower, and that's when the song starts.
-Later, in 0:48 we see Andrea putting on her riot gear.
-The Governor orders to cease fire and tells everyone to surrender and all that stuff, and around 1:15 he gets shot in the chest, then Andrea throws the helmet away in anger and in 0:23 she says she'll go "for the smaller game".
-She shoots some soldiers down and then the Governor spots her position and the watch tower receives a storm of bullets, with one of them grazing Andrea's head in 0:45, then she falls and the music stops abruptly at 0:48.
-A little while later the song continues right where it had stopped before as we see Andrea regaining consciousness and putting the helmet again but retiring the plastic piece that covers her face (how's that called? I'm from Spain, sorry), and at 2:03 she starts shooting soldiers down again.
-We see her shooting and reloading (I would have to research in order to know how many times she should reload) and the soldiers falling, as their partners are more scared second by second, and then at 2:44 she yells "RUN FUCKERS, RUN!" in ecstasy, with blood flowing on the left half of her face.
-Then we see everyone running away at the Governor's command. The group gets up and Andrea leaves the tower as the Woodburians get further away, and the song ends.
Do you like it? I think it is so epic that this song should become something like Andrea's theme from that point onwards, but not abusing it and using several versions according to the scene. For instance:
-Still in volume 8, when Gabe (I think that was his name) is shot right in front of the Governor, he looks where the shot came from and as Andrea appears in the top of the RV shooting the Metallica version of the song starts right at its chorus (electric guitar and all that). It goes on until that car crashes against the RV, right then the song stops abruptly, Andrea falls to the floor and then runs away.
-In volume 12 when they are heading to Alexandria with Aaron and she tells Rick how she feels after having lost everything, we would hear this song again but played in piano, since she inspires both tenderness and strength during that monologue.
-In volume 19, right after she screams "NO! NO!" when Connor is about to throw her down the bell tower, we hear part of the song played by violoncello/violin (or both) starting when Rick looks there after hearing her screams and he watches a body falling. The climax of the song arrives when we see Connor dead as she speaks and the picture moves slowly to the top of the bell tower, where we see her all beaten up saying "WE DON'T DIE" and then it stops.
Let's see what you think about it and if you like it I can share the other songs I would like for each scene and explain them. I have a whole lot more, so I think I should write them down in order not to forget them. And of course, please, if you have any ideas, you can share them in this same topic.
