For a better understanding of what's JJS reality-fiction series.

The best example which I can give you to explain the artistic intentions of JJS is to consult you in the film The Game with Michael Douglas and Sean Penn directed by David Fincher.

I downloaded the film torrent this week and I have hardly just viewed it. Great movie, great scenario, great concept. Exactly in the spirit of JJS.

Please read this from Wikipedia: "...The Game is a 1997 American psychological thriller film directed by David Fincher, produced by Polygram and starring Michael Douglas and Sean Penn. It tells the story of an investment banker who is given a mysterious gift: participation in a game that integrates in strange ways with his life. As the lines between the banker's real life and the game become more and more uncertain, there are hints of a larger conspiracy.The game in the movie can be viewed as a sort of alternate reality game with a large live action role-playing game component. Participants in real life versions of alternate reality games and live action role-playing games find the movie interesting and a source of inspiration for this reason..."

Alternate Reality Game, it is exactly what is JJS.

Wanna play again ?

J'aimerais vous exprimer un autre truc important avant de quitter. Mon inspiration structurel, organisationnel et économique pour ce projet vient du film Le Déclin de L'Empire Américain de Denys Arcand. En quel sens ? Raconter une histoire le plus simplement possible et avec le moins de moyen possible.

Le film était à l'origine, un petit projet de fiction proposé par Roger Frappier producteur alors à l'ONF, un fond de tiroir d'une enveloppe budgétaire.

"Denys, peux-tu m'écrire quelque chose pour un film pas cher à produire ?" Voilà l'histoire du Déclin...

"Pierre, peux-tu développer quelque chose pour Internet qui sera produit à environs 250 $ la minute ?" Voilà l'histoire de JJS.
