Montage sequences

I find montage are a good technique to create suspense? (Ok. Not for every story. But for the most.) I mean, if you describe the final race of script XY there would be it good. (Or a training’s montage á la Rocky.) Now but I have a question about it: Is this always following style? Or are there other techniques, too?

Int. Body (montage)

- The brain is activated and send signals,
- The nerves forward them quickly,
- The blood cells race through the veins,
- The heart beats heavily and faster

You can't write things that the viewer can't see, unless you show all theses things with CGI.

@Panos Yah! I thought I would use there CGI. But I wanted to know just the Montage format.

If that scene moves the story forward it is right. You know, after such a montage, there must follow a scene, watching which I will forget to breath for some seconds..

@Panos That was/is just an example. But if you like, I can write three (or more) scenes.

@Panos Here:

FADE IN:

EXT. RACE STADIUM – DAY

The grand stands are full of people. The audience wait eagerly that the race starts. Some are looking from the left to the right.

EXT. RACE STADIUM, RACE COURSE – LATER (DAY)

The runners are on the course, waiting that the referee gives starting signal.

The referee is coming to the course. He stops. Then he lifts the gun and shoots.

The dark-skinned racer is ready.

The racer’s eyes open wide.

INT. BODY (MONTAGE)

- The brain is activated and sends signals,
- The nerves forward them,
- The blood cells are racing through the veins,
- The heart beats heavily and faster

END OF MONTAGE

CUT TO:

EXT. RACE COURSE – DAY

The racer is running like a rocket.

FADE OUT.

@Panos I see a big, red question mark with two smaller one above my head. What do you want exactly?

Shouldn't that montage scene be a creative decision by the director and CGI department? You shouldn't have to write all of that. It seems that all you should write is that his adrenaline kicks in.
