Amazing...this information truly is amazing. I hope people realize this.

What interests me is the juxtaposition of moments in time in different scenes to heighten mood. Please see the attached page from Valentina. You have the interrogation of Valentina and her frantic loved ones, and just everything...clicks. The shots from behind Valentina as we face the interrogators with her, the small panels focusing on her mouth, the side panels with a phone ringing and characters in distress...
This page just really works for me, and I'd like to use a similar technique in my DWPFF story.
