Nowhere Near Here – Animated Film Created Using Light Paintings


Pahnl, a British street art artist, spent hundreds of hours to create this short animated gem. He used a combination of stop-motion animation and stenciled light painting techniques.

With well over 300 hours in the making, more than 200 stencils involved and too many cold nights spent outside on my knees getting the shots, I am very happy (and relieved) to finally share this with you. Through the course of shooting ‘Nowhere Near Here’, I have dealt with curious drunks, a dog almost peeing on the camera (the irony is not lost on me, haha), the endlessly suspicious police and even someone nearly running off with a tripod.

You can watch the film after the jump.

Stills from the film are available as prints on the artist’s site.
