White Lining

Student Project. This short documentary created as part of a student project and filmed in 2014 follows a road gang painting white lines on England’s roads.

On the face of it another real life story about people and their daily jobs, but this story has a unexpected twist as we start to look in more depth at the people and their jobs.

As we admire the skill of road gang as they hand paint the lines and circles that we take for granted, the lines on our roads, parking spaces and even the runways of the Airports.

This short film in the future could be developed into a Web Series or feature in a full length documentary by Smudgerhunt Film the video company setup by us students to showcase our films and creative talent.
