Books on Film: The Dominoes Continue to Fall

books on film banner1 Books on Film: The Dominoes Continue to Fall

Boy, do I like my book dominoes. I like them small, I like them big, I like them created by book stores. And now I like them from New Zealand, where the latest bit of book domino creativity hails.

Extra points for:

  1. Beginning the video with a book going into the return.
  2. The orchestral soundtrack.
  3. Making the books take a trip in an elevator and up an escalator (seriously, the escalator’s genius).
  4. Incorporating a zipline.
  5. Multiple camera angles.
  6. An insane amount of double takes as the giant book tower falls.

It might not be the largest in the world, but for my money, it’s the best one yet.
