We were delighted to have Rik, Joe and Adam from Pilgrim in to the studio to screen their short film ‘Man with a Brush’ and to have a Q&A with us about making independent and commercial films. ‘Man With a Brush’ is a short documentary the three of them filmed and released last year about Mike Meyers, one of America’s foremost sign painters from Mazeppa, Minnesota. He discovered sign painting as a free-spirited youngster and never wanted to do anything else. The film shows how his untamed passion and willingness to go all the way has taken him on an unlikely journey from small-town maverick to globetrotting guru.
You can watch the film below, and see more of their work at http://www.pilgrim.video/
Accompanying them on the first leg of their trip to Mazeppa, was Rob Smalley, who captured some amazing stills, some of which are featured below. You can see Rob’s full portfolio at http://www.robsmalley.com/portfolio/
