To mark the 50th Anniversary of the BBC Doctor Who TV series, the BBC approached Photobooths to build a set of three custom build photo booths in the form of the iconic Doctor Who Tardis. The Tardis’ were to be showcased along with other Doctor Who memorabilia at their promotional extravaganza at Heathrow Airport, Terminal 5.
The team at Photobooths built three exact replicas of the latest incarnation of the Doctor Who Tardis to the finest detail, the exact sizes and specifications were provided by BBC Worldwide. The full size Tardis allowed guests to enter the booth, be greeted by commonly associated Doctor Who sounds, and have their photo taken with or without green screen. Users could choose a selection of Doctor Who backgrounds including Gallifrey, Matt Smith, or Jenna Coleman. Software was created by our in house software developers to provide Doctor Who fans with a unique interactive experience.
The unique software also allowed guests to directly upload their prints to Facebook, allowing further promotional activity from the BBC to be spread virally.
Both the build and software development took approximately 8 weeks from agreement to of the final specifications to the delivery of 3 of the custom build photo booths and initial install of the first of them at Heathrow Airports’ Terminal 5.
