True.. It's like taking
that age old film technique called Junxtaposition to a whole new level though. *junxtaposition* is basically an old technique used for the purposes
of propaganda *usually but not always^
long story short.. it uses the concept that : i for example.. you have 3 clips of footage
Girl in a park running around
Man standing around in a park
Play the footage so it shows the girl then the ball then the girl then the ball then the man then the girl .. ball .. girl.. ball
you will assume that the man is watching the girl playing soccer.. perhaps it's her dad who knows
play the footage so it shows the girl.. then cut to the man then the girl then the man .. then finally a quick shot of the ball..
you will assume that the girl is being watched by some kind of child pervert and then seeing the ball on it's own .. perhaps he has taken the girl
and now her toy is left empty in the park.. etc
basicallly by showing a weatherman with say rain behind them.. it doesn't mean that there is any actual connection between the man and that rain in
reality.. but it's only natural for the viewer to establish that there must be some kind of relationship there.
if you watch a lot of films.. you will notice these odd cut0away shots of things like a gun on the floor.. or an odd painting on the wall..
this is no accident and you can almost always guarantee that those items will be of importance later on in the film..
