Watch David Bowie´s Last Music Video ‘I Can’t Give Everything Away’
According to NME, Barnbrook – who has worked with Bowie since 2002’s Heathen album – said he saw the animated video as a celebration of his life and art.
This is really a very simple little video that I wanted to be ultimately positive, Barnbrook said.
“We start off in black and white world of ‘Blackstar’, but in the final chorus we move to brilliant colour, I saw it as a celebration of David, to say that despite the adversity we face, the difficult things that happen such as David’s passing, that human beings are naturally positive, they look forward and can take the good from the past and use it as something to help with the present.”
Blackstar was also turned into an Instagram mini-series recently, which saw 16 different “visual interpretations” of the album hit the social network starring Rookie Magazine founder Tavi Gevinson and Six Feet Under actress Patricia Clarkson.
