OBEY THE GIANT

OTGWe’re very proud & extremely happy to announce that Learned Vices is one of the Executive Producers of the newly released “OBEY THE GIANT” film!!! (Whaaa?!? Yup, we can’t believe it either, but it’s true…still don’t believe us, check the credits. Boom.) We couldn’t be more honored & more exciTED to be a part of our homie Julian Marshall’s latest film…

OBEY THE GIANT, directed by Julian Marshall, is the first narrative film about the early life of Shepard Fairey and the origin of his OBEY GIANT street art campaign.

Based on the true story of Shepard Fairey’s first act of street art, OBEY THE GIANT tells the story of a young skate punk challenging a big-city mayor and the powers-that-be at art school.

Frustrated by his inability to gain respect within the confines of art school Shepard sets out to gain notoriety and acclaim by targeting the most powerful man in Providence, former Mayor Buddy Cianci. Risking expulsion and jail time Shepard plasters Andre the Giant’s face over the image of Cianci on a campaign billboard. As word of Shepard’s prank gets out, Shepard learns that art is a weapon and attention is both a blessing and a curse.

Congrats, Julian!!!! Please enjoy & share…
