“Saving Banksy” is the story of one misguided art
collectors attempts to save a Banksy painting
from destruction and the auction block.

Featuring some of the world’s top street artists,
this film poses the question “What would you do
if you owned a million dollar painting that the
artist doesn’t want sold?”

A documentary about the legality, politics, and ethics
of removing street art from the street, and what
happens once you have a giant unauthenticated
Banksy stored in your bedroom closet” - Vandalog

Saving Banksy focuses on the street artist’s oblique
relationship to the art market – an anonymous artist
whose public works aren’t for sale. Or are they? This
documentary would read like an international art heist
picture if the outrageous profiteering on display was
actually illegal. – Burnaway

Saving Banksy delivers insightful dialogue that
challenges attitudes around the interplay of art and
ownership. - Channelnonfiction

"Stick 'Em Up!" is a captivating film that explores the little-known world of wheat pasting, an inner-city art form that's as provocative as it is misunderstood. Documentary filmmaker Alex Luster delves into the minds and motivations behind some of Houston's most notorious guerilla street artists, capturing the lifespan of their art... conception, creation, placement and - ultimately - removal by the city's abatement enforcement. With commentary by legendary street artists and top local law enforcement officials, "Stick 'Em Up!" is a gritty, street-smart documentary that reveals the secret truth behind the prolific images you see every day - in cities all across the nation. Stick 'Em Up! was created by a team of talented Houston artists. A two-decade veteran of the Houston street art scene, GONZO247 worked as a Stick 'Em Up! producer and award-winning screenwriter Tony Reyes helped craft the story.
