Plot Summary

We see them almost every day without a second thought. Weathered by time, distinct characteristics shining through, hand-painted signs are a product of a fascinating 150 year-old American history. What was once a common job has now become a highly specialized underground trade, a unique craft struggling with technological advances. Sign Painters, directed by Faythe Levine & Sam Macon, stylistically explores this unacknowledged art form through anecdotal accounts from artists across the country including Ira Coyne, Bob Dewhurst, Keith Knecht, Norma Jeane Maloney and Stephen Powers. These vanguards of unseen originality are leading a renaissance with a keen creative purpose and exemplify the working class American success story. Sign Painters celebrates those keeping the tradition intact with a bespoke approach and appreciation for a balance between art and commerce.

Customer Reviews

Brilliant Film!

Such a great film. Very Inspiring. I saw it at the Milwaukee Film Festival, and had to own it so I can watch it over and over. Every time I see it, I get so motivated to produce my own artwork.

Sign Painters

Awesome film. One I'll be watching over and over again. Truly inspirational. Also want to give a heads up on the music. It was just enough in to foreground to accent the scenes' tones.

Inspiring

This is one of those films that sticks with you for a long time after you watch it. It is a brilliant commentary on our culture that goes way beyond the bounds of just sign painting. It provides hope and inspiration that we will hold onto traditions of true craft and quality. The feeling that sits with you is an appetite to create something beautiful, and an aching to do it really, really well.
