September 8th

I watched Desperate Housewives the other night and thought the way in which the beginning is narrated with a set voice talking about the silent footage with appropriate music in the background was really affective and an idea which i liked.

First Idea - Black and White biography of a music artist eg. Eva Cassidy - An amazing act who was unfortunate and suffered from cancer. 
Use of narration over music and writing on screen of timeline and major happenings in her life. 
- Eva Marie Cassidy (February 2, 1963 – November 2, 1996) was an American vocalist known for her interpretations of jazz, blues, folk, gospel, country and pop classics. She released her first album The Other Side, a set of duets with go-go musician Chuck Brown in 1992 followed by a live solo album, Live at Blues Alley in 
1996. Cassidy was virtually unknown outside her native Washington, DC when she died of melanoma in 1996. -
Possibly starting with a radio presenter introducing her and then going on from there with narration and pictures into someone acting to be her.

Other ideas of Musicians - 
Tracy Chapman (Problem - finding a suitable actor)
Joni Mitchell 
Frank Sinatra
