“Life breaks free. Life expands to new territories. Painfully, perhaps even dangerously.”
From Michael Crichton’s Jurassic Park
Perhaps Evan Dangerously is based upon a popular pop culture trope, often seen in
suspense movies. A character finds themselves in an idyllic location, only to know
that something dangerous lurks just below the surface. This moment is one of my
favorites in cinema and is what inspired me while writing this work. There are
hints of many musical and sound tropes from movies hidden throughout, including
sudden sounds, quiet creaks, dynamic crescendos, and ominous repetitions.
