  • Pipe Dreams - a voyage beneath London feat. soundtrack by LoneLady

    716 views 3 months ago
    A film about the world being created beneath London.

    Pipe Dreams is a short film commissioned by the Barbican to mark the passing of Crossrail's Tunnel Boring Machines beneath the Barbican Estate.

    Granted unique access as the final stretch of the Crossrail project’s tunnelling takes place between Liverpool Street and Farringdon, the film captures the magic of the tunnels in their present state, revealing the underground landscape and contemplating what is being created underneath our feet.

    Animation by Daniela Sherer (http://danielasherer.com/), filming by Bevis Bowden (http://bevisbowdenfilms.co.uk/), and music by LoneLady (http://lonelady.co.uk).
