Last Wednesday (10th Nov. 2010) saw the première of our new promotional movie by acclaimed Liverpool film maker John Scotland.
The James Carling Arte Concorrenza Marciapiede 2010 was the very first celebration of Italian pavement art on the big screen in Liverpool in High Definition! And what an experience it was…..to see an art-form that we love dearly elevated to the heights of a ‘motion picture’
The evening took place in ‘The Picture Box’ at FACT in Wood Street, Liverpool and consisted of 7 short films made by independent film makers from the North West.
It was a fantastic night and I must thank everybody who turned up on a very cold night in November….it’s the first time we’ve tried this and thought it was a great, fun way to celebrate…..a kind of after the event party and get-together for all our friends and supporters.
We might even make it an annual event!
You can see our film here…….we will be using this to attract business partners, funding and not forgetting some of the world’s greatest pavement painters to Liverpool. It’s no secret that it is our ambition to turn this into the UK’s only and best celebration of Italian street painting.
The UK is MILES behind the rest of the world when it comes to street art but we aim to change all that and in doing so change attitudes and opinions.
When all’s said and done thats what artists are supposed to do….aren’t they?
