Film Synopsis:
The trailer can be viewed at
Sign Painters celebrates the hand-painted sign industry, an American tradition. This documentary explores a fascinating insight into a a highly specialised underground trade, emphasising an appreciation for a balance between art and commerce. Directed by Faythe Levine & Sam Macon, the film 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.
