Mind the Gap | Cinematic Short Film by Ana Fediajeva
If you've ever been on a London Underground, or as we call it here, the Tube, you've probably heard the famous "mind the gap" phrase.
I was struggling with the name for this short film, but at the end, this title just made so much sense. And the simplicity of it is kind of inspired.
I tried capturing how busy and hectic London lifestyle is, and how the stress of the every day commute can get to you. You can see it in the face of almost every commuter in this film.
I tried making this short film as cinematic as possible, hope I done a good job, even though still so much to learn :)
Famous phrase that is said at the London Underground warning people who use the subway to be wary of the gap between the train and the platform. It has become synonymous with the London Underground.
The name of this short film "mind the gap" actually has a deeper meaning than just minding the actual gap between the train and the platform. I tried to use it as a metaphor, as in the gap between us enjoying life and being present in the moment, and us drowning in our every-day routine, completely oblivious to our surroundings, just stuck in our smartphones, in the world wide web, social media, trying to kill the time. Don't kill time, make time, for The real world that is around you.
We should try and make that gap smaller, and be more present, be more respectful to each other, and smile more. Even when we're going home after a long hard day at work.
It took me around 3 hours to film, and around 3 days to edit.
