Jaguar, page twelve

Jaguar continues, and we start a journey.

The major writing, framing and pacing influences on me whilst working on Jaguar were European New Wave Cinema of the 1950s and 1960s, and this journey is one example of that I guess. There's a scene in Godard's Breathless when Michel and Patricia are having a conversation whilst driving around Paris. The background's constantly shifting and doesn't have the same continuity as the conversation itself. It shifts around, goes backwards and forwards, and I think it's because Godard is trying to get over a feeling of the fluid ebb and flow of a real chat. Bits we remember are out of order. We go back to things we said earlier. We jump ahead.

This attempt to get some sort of feel of a real conversation is really what I'm experimenting with here, just to see if I can do it, and to see if it'll work.
