This year sees the 50th Anniversary of the now famous Doctor Who TV series, which first made an appearance on our screens on 23rd November 1963. As part of a programme of celebrations throughout 2013, BBC Worldwide have organised a number of events enabling fans of the Doctor Who franchise to personally engage with these celebrations. One of the ideas for this engagement was a custom build photo booth in the form of the iconic Doctor Who TARDIS.
The Customer Brief
The team from BBC Worldwide approached Photobooths.co.uk with the concept and outline of their requirements, which included:
The custom build photo booth would have to be an exact external replica of the latest incarnation of the Doctor Who TARDIS. The photo booth would need to enable the occupant(s) to post their photo to their own Facebook timeline direct from the booth or Enable the occupant(s) to send the photo to their chosen email address direct from the booth These requirements differed from most custom build photo booth requests in that they wanted to provide a sharable social media based Doctor Who themed memento, as against the usual printed photo memento. And also that the photos should be posted as quickly and easily as possible, in real-time, to the occupants own Facebook timeline direct from within the booth. Again this differs from the majority of photo booths which are “Facebook enabled”, in that they tend to only be able to send to one pre-defined page album and in the majority of cases only from outside of the booth once the photo has been taken inside.
