What happens after dark at TYPE Books in Toronto
We've been known to post the occasional timelapse or two, but this "behind the scenes" look at TYPE Books at night is a refreshing change from the skyline panoramas and traffic shots that often make their way into these sequences. Kind of like A Night at the Museum for books, this short stop motion film from Sean and Lisa Ohlenkamp injects life into a space that would otherwise quietly await the following day's customers.
Building on the success of a similar video involving their own bookshelves, the couple spent what they describe as "many sleepless nights moving, stacking, and animating books at TYPE." The Joy of Books is a compelling and fun sequence that does a great job of cloaking just how much work the whole thing must have taken to come together. It's the best two minutes I've spent all day.
