Father and Daughter Recreate Iconic Scenes from Movies
As the COVID-19 pandemic forced people into lockdown, many found themselves with an abundance of free time. With limited options for entertainment and socializing, people had to get creative with how they spent their days. Some took the opportunity to tackle their ever-growing stack of books, while others decided to use the time to pick up a new hobby or skill, such as cooking or playing the guitar. The pandemic may have disrupted our normal routines but provided a unique self-reflection and personal growth opportunity.
Alex Zane and his daughter Matilda are among the many who used their time during lockdown to embark on exciting new projects, which quickly gained popularity on social media. Their inspiring work serves as a reminder that even in the face of adversity, creativity and innovation can thrive. Furthermore, by sharing their journey with the world, they have brought joy and inspiration to countless others, proving that even the most challenging times can be a source of opportunity and growth.
Tot for Tot Remakes is the brainchild of Alex Zane and his adorable five-year-old daughter Matilda, whose recreations of iconic movie scenes have taken social media by storm.

Without hesitation, he snapped a photo and shared it on social media alongside the original, not knowing that it would soon become a worldwide sensation. It’s a testament to the power of serendipity and the incredible creativity that can emerge from everyday moments.
