Sean Ohlenkamp and his wife Lisa have created a mesmerizing fiction film that imagines what happens in a bookstore at night.
iPads, Kindles, and eBooks have been widely adopted by the reading set, but for others physical books still hold significant value. Sean Ohlenkamp and Lisa Blonder Ohlenkamp, a husband and wife creative duo from Toronto, Canada, are part of these choice few, and decided to celebrate their love of books with an entertaining stop motion animation. Six months prior, the couple ignited much interest when they filmed the process of organizing their own book shelf. Back on a much grander scale, the two have used Type Books, a local Toronto bookstore, as their latest video playground.
Taking over the bookstore at night, our eyes see books come alive – watching in amazement as they peer out from behind shelves, dance, stack themselves on tables, and create magical formations on the floor. Be prepared to be mesmerized as pages flap open and close, reminding us of the simple pleasures and the secret lives captured within physical books.
