Documentary on hand-painted advertisements

“Up There” is a 10 minute documentary about large hand-painted advertisements that appear on the sides of buildings.

Not only is it well shot, it illustrates how painted advertisements are a dying breed — all but replaced by printed advertisements and huge vinyl canvases.

I like this quote: “They can’t print what we paint. They print in pixels using lots of tiny dots. Yellow and blue dots look like green. We paint green.”
