Nerd Watch: Globe-Trotting Cinephile Mimics Scenes in Movies During His Travels

Nerd Watch: Globe-Trotting Cinephile Mimics Scenes in Movies During His Travels

Apr 30, 2012

"This is how I combine my loves of film and travel. I call it movie mimicking," film fan Allen Fuqua writes on his Tumblr. His ongoing photo series shows Fuqua reenacting movie scenes at their original location. It's basically a film nerd's dream, as most of us have wondered what it would be like to stand in the same places as some of our favorite cinema stars.

Fuqua isn't just hanging out at L.A. studio lots, either. He's venturing around the world visiting high schools, temples, bridges, and national parks in places like Japan, Illinois, and Costa Rica. It probably goes without saying that we're instant fans. Check out a few images from Fuqua's blog below and then head to Movie Mimic to indulge your travel bug and inner film fanatic.
