Paint It Forward A Draculas Short Film
Paint It Forward was a project that we (The Draculas) worked on in collaboration with the city of Long Beach. The project focused on the mural that we were currently painting, but it also focused on public art and what it can do for a community. The film was shot over the course of a week at City Hall in down town Long Beach. PIF did a good job capturing the progress of the mural at every stage of its development. It also was effective in conducting interviews from city officials and artists on what public art means to them and their communities. Most importantly the film asks the question of how can public art create a larger dialog as we move forward. In a growing city with a diverse population art makes a big difference and plays an important role. PIF was shot and directed by Sick Boat Creative and painted by the Draculas. The film originally premiered at the Art Theatre in downtown Long Beach hosted by Michelle Molina.
This project was a huge success all around in that we had the opportunity to work with the city but also build relationships with the community as well.
