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 and with it, the mammoth task of moving over 500,000 books to new premises a mere 100 metres further down Tottenham Court Road in little over 3 days.
We were asked to document this process with a time-lapse film capturing the move between the two buildings.
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.
