We would like to dedicate our movie, ONE TORONTO MINUTE, to the people of Toronto. For their spirit and enthusiasm in balancing chaos and calmness. Every fleeting moment of the day.
In our concept, we visualized TIME (protagonist) as standing in one spot and rotating 360 degrees in a minute. Thus witnessing a full day of urban life in a one minute. In ONE TORONTO MINUTE. We shot various fleeting moments of daily urban life with landmarkToronto locations as backdrops. Starting with brilliant sunrise (from Humber Bay Park with Toronto skyline as backdrop), people exercising and spending time with family (at High Park), rushing through the day (Spadina), experiencing and supporting Pride (Church street), unwinding after a hectic day (King Street), rushing home (Union Station), gentle evening walks (Harbourfront Centre) and magnificent sunset (The Docks/Polson Pier).
We are grateful to our families and kids for their continuous support during the making of this movie. It is important to note that on Father’s day they allowed us to go roam Toronto and shoot our videos. We would also like to thank our friends and family for their valuable feedback as we evolved and executed our concept. Last but not the least, we would like to thank the people of Toronto (who kept doing their daily urban life ‘thing’) and allowed us to shoot uninterrupted in all Toronto locations.
With Love and Respect,
Ravi and Saptarshi.
