7/7 SURVIVOR CREATES ANIMATED FILM RECOUNTING THE DAY



Written by Don't Panic

On July 7 2005, Georgina Ferguson was heading to work for her second day at a new job when the tube she was travelling on was blown up by a suicide bomber. She was in the carriage behind the one where the bomb exploded, killing 26 people.

She created this animated film, Seven Seven, to mark the tenth anniversary of the tragedy, of which she has this to say:

"I have never publicly spoken about what happened that day. Nor do a lot of my friends know that I was even involved. A year ago I realised that it was going to be the 10 year anniversary this July and decided that this would be a good time to share my experience. I am no wordsmith so I thought it might be best to use animation to communicate my story; as a motion graphic designer this felt most appropriate to me.
This is my story of Seven Seven, and how a stranger’s kindness helped me get out and start to move on. I never asked my guardian angel’s name, something I regret as I’ve never been able to really thank him. This animation is my way of giving them thanks - I really hope it can reach him.

For me, this film is about more than just personal catharsis and sharing an experience. Its about an act of remembrance, tribute and gratitude..."
