Faded Paint: Trailer for forthcoming signpainting documentary

The Colossal Media Facebook page recently alerted me to this trailer (see below) uploaded by Rick Janzen about a film he’s making about the declining art and craft of signwriting.

This will add to the work done by the Signpainter Movie team.

You can see some of the interviews he’ll be using here, with signpainters talking about how they got into the trade, including one from the UK.  I’ll update with more news as and when it becomes available…
