In the process of watching this documentary on “the dying craft of large scale hand painted advertising”, I ended up wondering if this was a subtle advertisement for Stella Artois, and it sorta kinda is. *edit* the original flash player I first saw this on had a city as the screen grab and there is no mention of Stella until the end.
Regardless, even though that kinda tainted this film just a little bit, it doesn’t take away from the fact that this is a nicely put together documentary. This is a topic I’ve never really thought much about, but I now have a better understanding of the whole thing. This makes you appreciate how nuts it is to actual paint these.
From the producers:
Shot high above the streets of New York City, UP THERE reveals the dying craft of large scale hand painted advertising and the untold story of the painters struggling to keep it alive.
