A London Tale

  • slideshow_large

Jonathan Amstead

Synopsis

The city of London has a beauty about it, but can sometimes be lonely for its inhabitants. Starting at dusk and ending at dawn the next morning, this film explores this idea of loneliness through four different scenarios showing the full gamut of life and death in the city, and exemplifies how indifference can exacerbate this plague of modern times.

Visually expressive and highly emotive, this film, though only five minutes long, works on a scale (visually and emotionally, that is) as big as the city it portrays. It is made using traditional forms of animation, as well as new forms such as computer animation, all skilfully composited together to convey feeling and emotion and life in an intuitive, expressive way.
