Exigence: In the woods

A scene from Exigence "In the woods"--Shane Lewis and Pry'ce Jaymes with special thanks to Jaymes Young...

In describing Exigence, I somewhat flippantly say it is Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid meets Three Days of the Condor, which is accurate insofar as the tone and action of the movie are concerned. There are also some subliminal references as well.

If you recall, Condor was set back East during the cold autumn-to-winter period. There is a scene in Condor where Redford analyzes Dunaway's photos as conveying that feeling of time. In Butch Cassidy, there is the buddy relationship that has a growing sense of impending doom in spite of the optimistic, if naive, attitude of the two friends. These references are made, subtlely, I hope in Exigence.

This sequence is a rough cut with no attention made yet to sound.
