Metropolis by precurser Metropolis by precurser
depthCORE: NOIR

METROPOLIS is quite possibly one of my most ambitious pieces of art to date. The thing that makes this particular work stand out in my mind is because I knew very little about the Fritz Lang movie, yet somehow managed to work so many prominent elements from it into my piece without any knowledge of them.

After completing METROPOLIS I immediately added the movie to my Netflix queue so I wouldn't feel like an idiot for releasing something that shares the title of a very famous film. I am glad I did, while it was quite difficult to follow the movie at certain parts (that's what friends are for!) I did manage to grasp the basics and really enjoyed viewing this amazing work of art. To think it was made in 1927 just boggles my mind. Do yourself a favor and check it out if you have 2 hours to spare!

As with all of my work, you can download the standard and widescreen desktop wallpaper at my site.

THis looks really nice, I especially love the design on the Name.

Do you think you could make a version of just the Name without the background graphic? I'd be in love with it

The full movie as premiered in German in 1927 was 2 hours 35 mins. They've found and restored it all back to it's original state and it should be out soon if not already.

This reminds me of a slew of movies, most notably Sin City. It's really well done, great job buddy.

Pure magnificence. That the image in all its simplicity can hold such profound weight and presence is just amazing, as commanding of attention as doors blown open wide to let in an explosion of blaring light. Of course the typography work makes quite the "noir" statement and brings about a more quiet aura of "class" to the piece.

Marvelous :heart:

Oh, it's an amazing film, watched it in a film study class. I don't remember much of it anymore, which makes me sad...
