Foyles – The Move
Foyles can easily lay claim to the title of London’s premier bookstore. However, having housed their collection in the same building since 1930, it was time for a change.
We were asked to document via time-lapse the mammoth task of moving over 500,000 books to Foyles’ new premises a mere 100 metres further down Tottenham Court Road in little over 3 days.
With every time-lapse taking between 45-90 minutes, we used 3 cameras with remote timed shutters to capture every second of the action. In addition to this, we used a motorised Digislider alongside the Syrp Genie to give the film its all important motion control.
