‘Up There’ documentary tells the story of hand painted billboards

A big thank you to Adam Flanagan over at the 160 Over 90 blog who shared a link to a lovely documentary, titled “Up There“, about the men who hand paint billboards in New York City.

The documentary was directed by Malcolm Murray and produced by Mekanism. As an aside, if you get a chance, go check out Mekanism’s home page — the random, fun, clever videos that load may inspire creativity or laughter.

For an even more in depth look into advertising, copyrighting, and creativity consider viewing “Art & Copy,” a documentary directed by Doug Pray, which also includes a section about a family owned billboard company — which gives you a parallel story, to that shared in “Up There”, into how billboard advertisements are designed, manufactured, and installed.
