Sign Painters - the movie
Burlesque-recommended film! If you are at all interested in the art, craft, or trade of hand-painted signs, then we strongly suggest you head over to signpaintersfilm.com to check out the new film from Faythe Levine and Sam Macon. Based on the book of the same name, the documentary covers the techniques, 100+ year history, and personal stories of the world of sign painting. It's an eye-opening and very properly-made film. Watch the movie, read the book, paint some signs!
We were pretty pleased to see Minneapolis' own Forrest Wozniak and Phil Vandervaart making appearances and showing off some of their Twin Cities signs in the film. Anyone living here will definitely recognize a lot of their work!
