¿Alguna vez has llegado a un nuevo destino para descubrir que ya lo habías visto antes? Las películas nos llevan a viajar, aunque no siempre sepamos a dónde. Por suerte para los más curiosos, existe una cuenta de Instagram dedicada a descubrir el lugar exacto en que las escenas cobraron vida.

Thomas Duke, creador de Stepping Through Film, vive en Londres, una ciudad que ha visto pasearse a actores y directores por décadas. Por eso, un día decidió recorrerla para encontrar los escenarios de sus historias favoritas, con fotograma en mano.

El proyecto es sencillo: tras descubrir una nueva postal, Thomas la interviene con un recuadro de la escena particular, ajustada en proporciones. Sus primeros ejercicios revivieron Skyfall, Sherlock Holmes y Expiación, Deseo y Pecado.

“Bond? Get on the train.” • This one took a rather long time… I had to wait for multiple trains to make sure I lined up the doors as best I could. In the film they actually use the disused Jubilee station at Charing Cross. I tried to see if I could access it but alas… it’s all cornered off and there’s no way in! I obviously needed a train though to capture these shots and a disused platform doesn’t have them running! I hope to maybe take a tour of some kind and get some other shots in the future, but for these I just picked the next best place: the clue is in the name. • • #skyfall #jamesbond #bond #danielcraig #london #city #underground #trains #iconic #rushhour #007 #adventure #film #photography #art #exploration #classic @transportforlondon

“If you look for it, I’ve got a sneaky feeling you’ll find that love actually is all around.” • It’s been 15 years since Love Actually was released and now it’s finally the season to watch it again and again! I couldn’t wait to re-create this film but I knew I should wait until it came closer to Christmas. It’s a film that everyone seems to watch around this time and I don’t know about other countries but it’s certainly a tradition here in the UK! Watching Alan Rickman shine and certainly with his arc in the film is really emotional seeing as he’s no longer with us. At least it reminds us of the bright spots one can bring. Seeing as the film intertwines different lives into one, I thought it was only fitting to do the same with the locations instead of simply just one. It was a trek! The gift-wrapping scene will always be my favourite – it makes me smile so much. • The first location is the Southbank. The second is in Selfridges. The third is in Notting Hill, and the last is at Heathrow! It was a long day… I visited Terminal 2, 3, 4, & 5. I was told different areas of the airport were the right places but this, Terminal 4, appeared to be the most talked of one so here we are. It’s undergone A LOT of refurbishment I was told, it was 15 years ago 🤷🏻‍♂️ • • #loveactually #christmas #winter #festive #beauty #family #love #loss #happiness #liamneeson #emmathompson #alanrickman #colinfirth #billnighy #film #photography #filmphotography #anniversary #selfridges #creative #london #outinlondon #loves_united_london #london4all #mysecretlondon @workingtitlefilms @theofficialselfridges @heathrow_airport @emmafreud

¿Una caminata por la ciudad siguiendo a los personajes de Love Actually?, ¿Una visita a la Universidad de Oxford para encontrar los salones en donde estudió Harry Potter?, ¿Un paseo por el salón principal de Hatfield House para recordar la heróica noche de Wonder Woman? Todo está aquí.

Coming from a land not familiar with the tribulations of mankind means that Diana Prince fights for what is truly right, what is pure and just. Her soul hasn’t been poisoned by the likes of gun powder and war-stricken states of mind. This scene in Wonder Woman (2017) shows her conviction to rid the world of evil yet also shows how unbeknown she is about the world she is trying to save. Killing one man will only worsen the situation and Chris Pine has to make her understand this before an already blood-drenched war gets even bloodier. I can’t begin to explain the beauty of the words that Trevor spews throughout the entire film – “If you see something wrong happening in the world, you can either do nothing or you can do something.” • Hatfield House is another amazing film location boasting so much beauty and elegance. I can’t wait to visit again one day! • #wonderwoman #pattyjenkins #director #life #love #friendship #art #creative #gold #vibrant #century #stevetrevor #chrispine
