Watch our latest teaser!
In Transit follows an anonymous set of everyday public transit users, inviting the audience to listen to their internal monologues and unfiltered thoughts as they use the train and subway systems in the city of Toronto.
Mill Quintero Acosta
Director + Co Producer
I’m Mill, the director and co-producer of In Transit. I have always cherished the shared community space that public transit provides us. It’s a space in which all different members of the community coexist as well as allow themselves to freely meander and reflect upon their day. Directing this documentary I have learned an infinite amount about filmmaking as well as experimental approaches to film due to its poetic nature. I am deeply grateful for my crew and all the hard work they have put into creating this experience. I’m very proud of the result.
Adam March - Producer
Hi, my name is Adam March and I'm the producer for In Transit. Personally, using public transportation puts me in a unique headspace that allows my countless thoughts to wander. The flow of these thoughts in this environment is practically begging for an experimental doc to be made on it... so we made it. I had a lot of fun helping out on this doc and I hope everyone enjoys it as much as we enjoyed making it
Director of Photography
Hi my name is Arshia Prajapati and I’m the director of photography / camera operator for this epic film. As someone who gets a lot of anxiety while being on public transit, I found this film’s concept extremely unique. We wanted to prioritize creating a stunning yet immersive visual experience for the audience while being as raw as we can about showcasing the intricate attributes of public transit and the surrounding environment. This was all done by mostly using a handheld approach to shooting! I am immensely excited for everyone to watch this film as it will definitely take you through a one of a kind audio-visual experience.
Transmedia Producer + Social Media
Hiii, my name is Bella and I'm the head of social media for this documentary! I've promoted this documentary via audience interaction posts, promotional videos, using trending hashtags, etc. to reach a larger audience and gain engagement from followers. Besides social media, I'm more specialized in camera work!
Evan Jones - Colourist
Hi, my name is Evan and I am the colourist for In Transit. I loved this project's unique idea from the moment I heard it and am very grateful I had the opportunity to work on it. Much of the challenge for myself has been making sure the shots have a consistent feel but also keeping the light and colour originally captured by our awesome DoP. It has been a great time working with Mill and putting the final touches on the picture.
