Goodbye London – Metropolis Art Prize Entry 2009

Babelgum Metropolis is looking for the globe’s best and edgiest artists for what is being termed’the world’s biggest art show’. Winners will have their work shown on giant advertising screens this December in Times Square, the neon heart of New York City.

Out of the notable nominees is Luke Jackson’s Goodbye London video, directed by Murray John. The video features a mix of stop motion photography and drawn 2-D animation using After Effects. Having just moved to the heart of Camden Town ourselves we really like the video, in fact we love it:

Luke and Murray collaborated on the video via email, attempting to capture the bittersweet sentiment of the song’s lyric. They didn’t actually meet until the video was almost finished.

You can vote for your favorites by clicking the thumbs-up icon beneath the videos over at http://www.babelgum.com/metropolisartprize.

There are some fantastic videos featured, the voting period is 4th November – 2nd December.
