While watching La Jetée I was struck by the movement through a scene as well as through time. The way the still images were shown one after another seemed as if they were moving. I think this was mostly due to how carefully cropped they were. They all were part of a larger “picture” and this was evident when you were watching. If you take one experience and divide it into a number of different moments. Then once you have the moments you get to stitch them back together and narrate a story. To me this made each image more important because i had a sense of the larger “picture” but i had to think about why this image was framed a certain way and how it fit in with the ones that came before. Later in the film this same technique was used but the timing of the images was changed as well as the music that was playing.
