/Film is proud to exclusively announce that a previously untitled, currently in production documentary on the world of gig posters has officially been dubbed Just Like Being There. The crew, lead by director by Scout Shannon and producer by Johanna Goldstein, has been traveling the country documenting some of the best poster artists in the business and they plan on releasing a movie about this world. If you read /Film, you know this is a subject that’s near and dear to my heart so when I heard about this film, I had find out more about it to share with you all.
“Gig posters” doesn’t only refer to concert posters, though. It pretty much covers all kinds of limited edition poster art such as the posters that Mondo releases, gallery shows at places like Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles or Spoke Art in San Francisco and, of course, the art that people make for the concerts you go to. Just Like Being There focuses on three specific artists – Kevin Tong, Daniel Danger and Jay Ryan – at the center of this ever-expanding and increasingly popular world but will also feature footage from concerts, bands, poster conventions and various gallery openings for artists who grew to prominence through their gig posters. The aim is to open a window into this niche world and make audiences aware and excited about this kind of art, much in the way Exit Through the Gift Shop ignited the world of street art.
After the jump, find out how you can be part of the filmmaking process, watch an exclusive clip from the film, read an interview with the director and much more. Read More »

It goes on sale at some time Tuesday December 14 at Mondo so follow @MondoNews for the exact moment. See the full poster after the break. Read More »
