SIgns Of Life

If you'd ever pity the folks who have to make their living from spinning signs, Danny Corey's great short doc will certainly change your mind.
“I had never seen anyone spin a sign like this. His movements were wild but based in method. This wasn’t just sign spinning, it was art in the middle of one of the busiest intersections in Hollywood. He looked like a maniac, and I was captivated. At that time in my life, I felt shackled to my responsibilities, and a rush of envy swelled inside me when I saw him. This guy is alive, I thought. For me, an East Coast boy, he represented everything I imagined about the Wild West—a sun-soaked, hardworking renegade living his dream. I remember thinking, I want to tell this guy’s story.” (Forty)
