Ovaj student ne samo da obožava filmove, nego ih i živi kroz životopisne fotografije Foto: Instagram
Na svom Instagram računu, Thomas Duke objavljuje veoma zanimljive fotografije. Naime, ovaj student obilazi lokacije na kojima su snimljeni poznati filmovi i TV serije i ponovo ih oživljava svojim maštovitim fotografijama.
Precizno postavljanje fotografije kako bi bila ista kao i scena iz filma nije lako, ali Thomasova ljubav prema filmu ga potiče prebroditi sve prepreke kako bi napravio savršenu fotografiju.

On je student na Univerzitetu Brunel u Londonu. Studira film i u svoje slobodno vrijeme fotografira. Veliki je ljubitelj filma, pa je prilikom šetnje po Londonu primijetio nekoliko lokacija na kojima su snimljeni sad već kultni filmovi. Ograda iz filma Zapravo ljubav (Love Actually) nalazi se u Southbank Centru, u Londonu.

“The truth is, I’m in love.” ♥️ • Swipe left to see them all grown up! Love Actually (2003) vs the Love Actually Red Nose Day reunion (2017). Continuing with the festive season, here’s another scene from the beloved rom-com where Liam Neeson and Thomas Brodie-Sangster are looking over the Thames talking about love. They’re seen sitting on a bench, which is no longer there, on the London Southbank – look at how young Thomas looks! Fast forward 14 years and here they are again – this time a few minutes away next to the Tate Modern – catching up on the good old days. Did you know? Sangster was only 5 years younger than Keira Knightley in the film… but she was getting married and he still looked about 10… let that sink in. • I love exploring this film! It’s such a pleasure being able to do so and with less than 2 weeks until Christmas it’s just too perfect 😊 it’s quite emotional seeing the difference 14 years does! • • #loveactually #london #christmas #festive #holidays #love #family #time #reunion #winter #classic #film #photography #explore #thomasbrodiesangster #liamneeson

Kada je shvatio da samo u Londonu ima mnogo lokacija na kojima su snimljeni njegovi omiljeni filmovi, odlučio je oživjeti kultne scene pomoću svojih fotografija.

“Put on a happy face.” 🤡 • My first visit to the Bronx lured me towards this steeping staircase of menacing delight. Glistening grey steps towered in front of me and a faint image of a dancing clown, thrashing his limbs elegantly with a smile spread widely, came racing towards where I stood. The Joker. Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker. My eyes re-created his enigmatic moves… one step at a time. My heart shuddered at this location - being where this controversial and captivating film was partially born. ‘Joker’ is releasing in most places this week and despite a lot of headlines being filled with negative takes on this project, it’s simply too hard to ignore the artistic, Scorsese, vintage vibes that this film exudes. Unnerving is a good way to describe the movie. Visceral, haunting and thought-inducing are other ways for sure… it’s easier said than done to ‘put on a happy face’. • The first trailer for ‘Joker’ was released in April this year. I really wanted to visit a scene from it while I was in New York and so I managed to find this (already seemingly iconic) location during my time exploring in July… 3 months ago now! The closest metro station was 167th St. It was a short walk to the steps (167th street between Jerome and Anderson Avenues) and a slightly longer walk to a ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’ location which also shot some scenes around here. I’ve waited for the anticipation to simmer up to a boil to share this film and now we’re finally at its release… I’m excited to see where this film goes in the future of this ever-changing industry… • • #joker #jokermovie #jokerart #joaquinphoenix #toddphillips #robertdeniro #comedy #tragedy #dccomics #batman #heathledger #markhamill #iconic #newyork #visitnyc #cinematography #film #photography #art

"Kada sam bio mlađi, stalno sam gledao filmove. Obožavao sam svaki odlazak u kino. Zato sam odlučio spojiti film, fotografiju i kreativnost i istražiti neka zanimljiva mjesta", kazao je.

Thomas izradi fotografiju sa željenom scenom iz filma, zatim odlazi na lokaciju gdje je on snimljen i pokušava staviti sliku u pravi položaj kako bi oživio tu scenu. On tvrdi da ne koristi fotošop, da zaista ide na prave lokacije i da on drži sliku u ruci prilikom fotografiranja.

“A dream within a dream?” • The Inception bridge! 🎬 Or how it’s otherwise known: Pont de Bir-Hakeim bridge. Such a stunning piece of architecture with its tinted steel columns raising the large structure to support the metro line above, its positioning being a perfect photo-op with the Eiffel Tower looming in the backdrop. Inception created a multi-mirror-dimension fun house woven throughout the underpass of this bridge – it makes for a truly wonderful scene in the 2010 film and makes visiting this mind-boggling location feel even more like I’m stepping through not just a film… but a dream. So much fun trying different versions of this! • I remember trying this scene back in 2018. However, I was not prepared! The mirrored, digital, 2-way aspect of the mirror themes meant that most shots were very hard to achieve. I wanted to TRY and show the feeling of Ariadne manipulating her surroundings so I took a few possible shots with me. It was very windy and cold but I just about got it done! Ps. Lovely place to spot some wedding photoshoots, an idyllic piece of scenery for that! • • #inception #leonardodicaprio #ellenpage #tomhardy #dreams #paris #cinema #pontdebirhakeim #christophernolan #film #photography #cinematography

Posjetio je i  New York gdje je oživio scenu prvog okupljanja popularnih Osvetnika (Avengers). Ovo putovanje je iskoristio i za fotografiranje još nekoliko popularnih scena, između kojih je i scena iz Jokera, koji je ove godine donio nagradu Oscar glumcu Joaquinu Phoenixu.

Thomas svoj talent koristi i za oživljavanje scena iz TV serija, kao što je na primjer Sherlock. Na ovoj slici je scena iz Sherlocka koja je snimljena na Univerzitetu u Cardiffu, ali su taj dio grada u seriji predstavili kao centar Londona.

“The best and wisest men I have ever known. My Baker Street Boys; Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson.” 🔎 • I teamed up with @baftacymru to explore the scenery of Cardiff/Wales and step through some iconic BAFTA nominated productions that have been filmed in the area ahead of their awards on the 13th October. From Sherlock to Gavin & Stacey, to Doctor Who and Torchwood - to name but a few. Shows I’ve experienced for many years and now I’ve had the chance to follow in their footsteps! Did you know a lot of Cardiff is used as ‘London’ on screen? This first Sherlock shot being a prime example; that’s actually @cardiffuni while it’s meant to represent Central London. Doctor Who also has a lot of this. Screen sorcery! I’ll be sharing more in-depth info on each location in my story so you’ll be able to find each one if you’d like to have a little adventure of your own. • It was so much fun exploring Cardiff properly for the first time. I’ve travelled over and under the city before but never in heart of it all. So much to see and Doctor Who locations around every single corner. So interesting to meet all of the locals and see the sights. Can’t wait to visit again soon! 🎬 • • #sherlock #doctorwho #whovian #torchwood #gavinandstacey #sarahjane #film #television #bafta #wales #cardiff #photography #cardiffuni #benedictcumberbatch #davidtennant #mattsmith #walesonline #visitcardiff

Oživio je i nezaboravnu scenu iz animiranog filma Mala sirena. Kako bi uspio napraviti tu savršenu sliku, morao je ući u vodu s aparatom.

"Bio je to izvanredan prizor. Bilo je zabavno istraživati mali grad i pokušati nešto drugačije od običnog stajanja i fotografiranja", istaknuo je Thomas.

“Wish I could be part of that woooorld!” 🌍 🐠 • 30 years ago, on the 17 November 1989, The Little Mermaid became part of our world. Its oceanic essence of Disney magic has stayed with many of us over these past decades as Ariel continues to spread the musical anthems from under the sea. I wanted to try something a little different for this film. I ventured to the coastal regions of Cornwall (Looe to be exact) to find the perfect rock to encapsulate this iconic moment in reality. A wetsuit and more patience than usual was certainly needed but even then, I knew the result would be a little uncertain. Waves crashed and the irrational fear of sharks in Cornwall kept me busy. I tried to hold it together, stretching my arms to the sky, in an attempt to keep the card away from salty splashes while also preventing my equipment from being lost in the depths. It ended up being a really fun shot to capture! With some Google Maps, internet searching, and talking with tourist groups such as Visit Cornwall - I narrowed the perfect beach down to Hannafore in Looe. It was a little uncertain but it ended up being a good choice! • Regarded as the animated classic that bought in the Disney Renaissance, this film changed the landscape of Disney Animation with it becoming a much needed box-office hit and then by being followed by a slew of other fantastic fare; Beauty and the Best, Aladdin, The Lion King, Tarzan etc. It remains relevant today and I’m sure Disney will ensure the power and importance of this film are true to the present when the remake is released in the near future. • • #thelittlemermaid #30thanniversary #disney #ariel #ocean #musical #jodibenson #animation #art #film #photography #composition #water #nature #mymicrogap #visitengland

Fotografiranje savršeno postavljene fotografije može biti stresan proces, ali Thomas smatra da je ključno ostati pribran, sve dok ne uslika pravi trenutak.

"Često je veoma lako, ali ja sam perfekcionist, pa ću pokušati dobiti što savršeniju sliku. Potrebno mi je samo malo više strpljenja i posvećenosti, kako bih uslikao fotografiju kojom sam potpuno zadovoljan", istaknuo je Thomas.

Za svaku fotografiju mu je potrebno između 30 minuta i sat vremena. Mnogo faktora utiče na to koliko će trajati fotografiranje jedne scene. Thomas mora pričekati da se ljudi maknu iz kadra i mora držati fotografiju tačno u određenom položaju, bez obzira na klimatske uvjete, odnosno ometajuće faktore poput vjetra i kiše.

“The destiny of a great kingdom rests on the shoulders of a young boy, his name... Merlin.” 🔮 • I foraged deep within the magical & ancient woodlands of @puzzlewoodfod! These stunning woods are found in the heart of the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire and they’re a key filming location to some major productions such as: Star Wars, Doctor Who, Atlantis, and as you can see here… MERLIN! Did you watch Merlin when it aired? I grew up watching the show on TV – every week I’d go over to my nans and we’d watch it together, we both loved the magical bits & bobs along with the medieval take on the Arthurian legend. This memory made visiting this location so very special, I held up each photo and was reminded of all those visits and biscuits with my nan! 🎬💚 • What an amazing place to explore! It took a while to figure out where each place was but with the help from the wonderful team at Puzzlewood, it was really great to see exactly where each different scene took place. Trees and rock formations have slightly changed over the years but for the most part, the general landscape and details have stayed recognisable. • • #merlin #puzzlewood #colinmorgan #kingarthur #magic #mystical #wonder #forestofdean #scenery #bbc #mymicrogap #visitengland #photography

Usprkos trudu, ne uspije svaki put dobiti savršenu fotografiju iz prvog pokušaja, pa se često mora vratiti na određenu lokaciju. Thomas se nada da će nastaviti putovati po svijetu i da će stvoriti još mnogo fotografija koje odaju počast kultnim filmovima i serijama, prenosi Business Insider.

“You’re a wizard, Harry.” • Every journey starts somewhere and sometimes that journey is a magical one. This is the entrance to The Leaky Cauldron from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (2001) which leads them to Diagon Alley. The entrance is now an opticians... but the structure is certainly still there! • So much magic lines these streets at @leadenhallmarket it truly is a fantastic area to visit. I almost took these pictures at around midday but luckily those plans changed and I was able to bump into Matt Smith & Lily James elsewhere, I’m still over the moon. It makes me think about the little decisions that can change the whole mapping of your life! Even if this one decision wasn’t that big... • 1 month until we get to watch Newt on his next adventure, 1 month until we’re transported back to the Wizarding World. I can’t wait to visit the @wbtourlondon to take some of these pictures there! • • #harrypotter #hagrid #diagonalley #magic #wizardingworldofharrypotter #danielradcliffe #jkrowling #books #wizard #hogwarts #london #fantasticbeasts #film #photography #art

"Mislim da ljudi vole moje fotografije, jer svi vole filmove. Svatko se može povezati s Harryjem Potterom, Jamesom Bondom i Spidermanom. Film je svuda oko nas i on predstavlja savršenu temu za razgovor", istaknuo je Thomas.
