First Trailer for SXSW’s Gig Posters Doc JUST LIKE BEING THERE

A documentary on the world of gig posters lead by director Scout Shannon and producer Johanna Goldstein, who has been traveling the country documenting some of the best poster artists in the business.

The film focuses on three specific artists – Kevin Tong, Daniel Danger and Jay Ryan – at the center of this ever-expanding and increasingly popular world but will also feature footage from concerts, bands, poster conventions and various gallery openings for artists who grew to prominence through their gig posters. MONDO’s reinvigoration of “the film poster as an art form,” and Gallery 1988’s theme based exhibits are only two ways in which this artwork is reaching a greater public. In a community with strong roots, dating back to the 1960s, this expansion is controversial- refreshing to some, sacrilegious to others.
