“UP THERE” is a short film which follows walldogs as they paint various Stella Artois wall advertisements in SoHo.

Shot high above the streets of New York City, “UP THERE” reveals the dying craft of large-scale hand painted advertising and the untold story of the painters struggling to keep it alive.

Capturing a trade that is equal parts artistic precision and greuling labor, the filmpresents a painting tradition pre-dating modern advertising. A craft that today finds itself dangling precariously on the brink of extinction.

A great look into this lost art, and a really well done flick.
