It’s somewhat hard to believe that “OBEY THE GIANT” – the short film based on Shepard Fairey‘s life – is actually the ambitious work of a 22-year-old RISD film student, Julian Marshall. On the other hand, it seems a starkly appropriate transference of power. After creating some buzz on Kickstarter and more than doubling his pledge goal, Marshall’s narrative film about the origins of Shepard Fairey’s notorious street art piece has been posted for public viewing on Vimeo. The film has received the approval of Fairey himself, and if its existence is any indication, is also the beginning of a bright future for Marshall. Enjoy the film above.
