OBEY THE GIANT: The First Narrative Film About OBEY
Filmmaker Julian Marshall seeks to tell the narrative story of Shepard Fairey’s OBEY imprint much in the same way David Fincher captured the Facebook saga in The Social Network. Like many other young directors, Marshall has taken to Kickstarter where he hopes to raise $30,000 USD to complete a feature length film shot while in school at the Rhode Island School of Design. The official synopsis of 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.” With the film shot over the course of eight days in Providence, Marshall is looking for the artistic communities help to finish his passion project.
