Sky High Murals

Today we take a look at a dying art form: hand-painted ads. If you’re someone who has any kind of opinion about the advertisements you see everyday, this might throw you for a loop. These guys are amazing. Working in New York, flying high over the traffic, they hand-paint huge custom murals for ad agencies. I have to say, I’d much rather have these any day over those invasive vinyl building wraps, or illegally-installed billboards. The men you watch in this short film, sponsored by Stella Artois for some reason, may be the last in the business.

Not only a surprisingly informative little twelve-and-a-half-minute film, it’s shot beautifully and available in a reasonably high-def setting. Enough of my buttering up, let’s get to the film. I give you: Up There
