About the Movie
In the gig poster community, artists such as Daniel Danger and Jay Ryan prove that creating this artwork is more than just a career, it is a way of life. These artists are at the forefront of the expansion of the gig poster genre. Mondo’s reinvigoration of the film poster as an art form, and Gallery 1988’s theme based exhibits, are only two ways in which the artwork is reaching a greater public. In a community with strong roots, dating back to the 1960's, this expansion is controversial. While refreshing to some, it is sacrilegious to others.
A Stylish, Smart Doc About an Emerging Scene
The art poster scene has been blowing up for the past 5-7 years. Finally a documentary has come along that captures just how vibrant and important such works are as am emerging movement within the larger art world. I didn't know what to expect at first, but JUST LIKE BEING THERE was endlessly fascinating, funny, and thought-provoking. Also, the music rocks. Can't recommend it highly enough.
