THE ARCHITECTS (ROUGH EDIT)

Rough edit for a Film that I directed and am currently finnishing about the Graffiti scene
in the UK (London) during the 80’s. It focuses on it’s most influential artists, one of the
5 featured is Fuel, who was once in the U.K’s top ten most wanted Criminals and has
never appeared on camera until this film. He along with Part2ism,SHEONE,Prime and
Pride reminice about how they have evolved as artists and where Graffiti has evolved.
I come from a Punk Rock background, so I always try and incorporate a Punk esthetic
into my work , making sure nothing is too neat or pretty. Hip Hop was for me the natural
successor to Punk with it’s breakbeats, sampling and graffiti all part of that scene I love
so much. As This is a rough cut , I have only added temporary titles and audio still needs
to be done so at times it’s a bit patchy but I just wanted to get it out as Graffiti is a true
passion of mine and I have been sitting on it now for almost two years.
